What if I Lose My Precious Vax Card? Louisiana Has a Solution
With the way things are going, it's a pretty safe bet that you'll need the COVID-19 vaccine - and the card that comes with it. You know, that little, postcard-sized piece of heavy cardstock that proves when, where, and what kind of vaccine you received. More and more companies are looking at masks, vaccines, and the aforementioned card as a condition to work or spend money with their business.
You could say that it has already started, because Live Nation Entertainment (the parent company of Ticketmaster and Live Nation Concerts) just announced that they would let the individual artists choose whether or not to require masks and/or vaccination cards as a condition of entry for the show!
Being a forgetful individual, I immediately think of the inevitable moment when I need to present said proof of vaccination - only to find that I have misplaced it! The thought has caused me grief on more than one occasion.
Luckily, the great state of Louisiana is looking out for absent-minded folks like myself. According to a report from The Town Talk, you can now add your vax card information to your Louisiana REAL ID. You may remember that name as the digital wallet where an electronic version of your Louisiana driver's license lives.
The service and the app (available in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store) are free! You can also print out a primitive (paper) copy to replace the one you've lost by visiting this site.
