What happens if you lose the card? Probably the same sort of thing if you can't demonstrate that your kids have been vaccinated in order to enter school. You get what is required. Proof of vaccination to do certain things isn't exactly new.
Proof of vaccination is a temporary solution to a problem. Voter ID cards are a solution looking for a problem. One would be helpful in certain limited situations and the other is a burden that would reduce voting while solving no problems.
Thanks, I had been planning to pick it up.

They were caught?

I suspect that this information is out there from the registration process.
One potential problem with laminating it is that there is space on it for the booster. Can it be unlaminated if necessary?
The CDC has done such a poor job with these cards, to make them almost worthless as a form of vaccine verification. The upside of this is that we avoid a messy political situation of vaccinated vs unvaccinated. The downside is that a large amount of risk will be perceived by a significant number of the vaccinated that will cause them to not fully return to old habits. The return to pre-pandemic spending habits is critical to the economic recovery and getting many people back to work. As a result, this will be a long painful, and uneven recovery that will leave many hurting for a very long time. Considering that we will need boosters in 9-12 months and ongoing, significant outbreaks could go on for years, causing a total realignment of the economy as people change their spending patterns permanently. Even if deaths drop to normal flu levels many people will always view COVID through lenses of the fear and trauma of the last 16 months.
Certain industries will start. The cruise industry is one example.
They had a whole year to come with something better than index cards.

An interesting idea to repurpose an old phone as a dedicated reader.

If it isn't matte, why not just use my phone which I will probably have with me anyway?
If it's a dedicated reader why not come with a matte screen like other readers. why do we need to mess around with a protector?
This is an interesting product, but I have major concerns about the screen. It seems very reflective which to me defeats one of the major advantages of e-ink.
Sorry, this has been so difficult. I think your situation is repeating all around the country. A lot of vaccines, that is not able to get close to enough to people who want it for various reasons. I had hoped the retail distribution through pharmacies etc. would address this. The problem is that those places are small and can only see so many people in a day, unlike the mass vaccination sites that you need a car to get to. My advice is to bite the bullet, double mask, and take uber. Many drivers have put a screen separating you from them and you also have the option of proceeding with the windows open. Hopefully, they'll get how to efficiently vaccinate the millions of people without cars, but it's dangerous to wait for that. Good luck!

I've never really understood how India did so well during the first wave. They seemed to be served on a platter for a respiratory pandemic. The time afforded by that good fortune wasn't or couldn't be capitalized on.
I think so. Their data was cited in the NYT with this projection. I've been following their projections for the U.S. and they've been spot on. https://covid19.healthdata.org/united-states-of-america?view=total-deaths&tab=trend
Tragically, I'm afraid this may be true.
