CLEVELAND — Office Max is offering free lamination of completed COVID-19 vaccination cards.
Now through July 25, customers who have been fully vaccinated can bring their completed vaccination record card to their nearest Office Depot or OfficeMax store for free lamination.
Customers can provide the coupon code 52516714 at checkout to get the free offer.
The Center for Disease Control recommends all vaccine recipients to keep their cards, which contain information like what COVID-19 vaccine was given, the date it was received and where it was received, in case they’re needed for future use.
Vaccination records can likely eventually be replaced if they are lost or damaged, but it is especially important to take good care of your vaccination records during this pandemic, when the country's health care systems are stretched thin.
"A vaccination card is a tool that people can use to declare that they have some level of protection against COVID," said John Brownstein, Ph.D., an ABC News contributor and epidemiologist at Boston Children's Hospital. "Being able to assess immunity to COVID is a critical part of trying to resume our daily lives."
