Read through our Frequently Asked Questions to learn more about the Badge and how it works
What is the purpose of the COVID19-Protected Badge?
The purpose of the Badge is so that others can easily recognize that you have been vaccinated and are protected. The CDC says that people who have been vaccinated can gather, socialize, etc. You know—”go back to normal”. Imagine going to a restaurant with your friends, and others around you have no concern that you are not wearing a mask because they can tell that you have been vaccinated and are protected because you have a prescription-only COVID19-Protected Badge.
How big is the Badge?
It is 1 inch high and 3 inches long (not too big, not too small).
What material is used and how is the Badge finished?
The standard Badge is a strong but light-weight plastic. It is finished with a matte finish to protect it from everyday wear and tear. An upgraded metal badge is available.
Where do I wear the Badge?
The COVID19-Protected Badge is meant to be worn on the chest so it can be easily recognized as you go through public. We have a patent-pending bracelet (and other items) in the works, but first we need to get the world ready for this “new norm” so wear it on your chest so others can see that you’ve been Vaccinated & Protected! The standard attachment is a jeweler’s pin, but this pierces through the clothing so an upgraded magnet back is available.
Can someone else wear my Badge?
No. The Badge is prescription-only and can only be worn by you. Sharing a badge with someone would be unethical and illegal. Same reason you can’t share your driver’s license with a 12 year old—they haven’t passed the necessary steps to not be a hazard to society.
I want to get a COVID19-Protected Badge for my child/ren. Can I order an extra for my kid?
Since the Badge is prescription-only, each and every person will need their own. At this time, that means you will need to make a separate account for each child and upload their own CDC COVID19 Vaccination Record Card.
Is the Badge available in different colors?
Not yet, but that may be an option in the future.
What if I don’t have my COVID19 Vaccination Record Card?
This is the only evidence you received the vaccine(s). You will need to obtain a replacement card from the medical provider, facility, or pharmacy that gave you the vaccine(s) in order to upload it to our database.
Is the website’s database secure?
I see that the current vaccines do a good job protecting against COVID19 virus mutations/variants, but what if I have to get a booster shot in the future?
Good question! Right now, it looks like we are well-covered, but what if that day ever comes? We provide discounts for medically-updated Badges (simply upload your updated Vaccine Card).
Is this the Vaccine Passport I’ve been hearing about in the news?
No. The Vaccine Passport is a digital vaccination record that some countries require for international or domestic travel. For example, if you plan to fly to England then you will need a digital Vaccine Passport on your smartphone to prove that you’ve been vaccinated or tested negative to the COVID19 virus within the past few days. Note, these digital vaccination records are still in development and very hard to produce as vaccine records often are not available through a centralized database…and many vaccine registries do not have all your vaccine records! We do plan to someday offer your own prescription-only Badge, if you choose, as a digital Vaccine Passport but that would require a centralized and accurate database of COVID19 vaccines in the United States which currently does not exist.
