People Are Loving Their COVID Vaccination Stickers: Here Are the Best Ones We've Seen
The vaccination effort in the U.S. and all over the world has revealed something about human nature. No, it’s not just that we all can’t wait to go outside and hug our friends in crowded bars again. That’s true, but the real epiphany is just how bad people of all ages want stickers.
It used to be that voting was the only time adults could get stickers, and it was fun to see how different cities and states decorated their “I Voted” stickers.
The vaccine stickers are no different, except that people are even more relieved to be receiving them than they might be after voting. And with so many different businesses, hospitals, cities, states and groups running vaccination efforts, there are opportunities for creativity.
From a marketing standpoint, it might be the most share-worthy item in the world right now, as everyone is eager to post their newly-immunized status to friends.
And it’s been fun to look at the variety of stickers posted online from all over the world, so we thought we'd run down some of our favorites.
Not quite sure how one takes a cute selfie w/ their vaccine sticker, but here are my outtakes lol. Happy to do my part to stop the spread of #COVID19 by getting my 2nd dose of the #PfizerVaccine from @StormontVail. No side effects yet, just some soreness around the injection site pic.twitter.com/lqiAM6bqf0

Sure, a band aid is sort of a vaccination sticker on its own, but unless you get a fancy one, it’s not quite as flashy. It’s also not as visible as a sticker, being that it’s under your shirt sleeve all day.

The “Vaccinate New York” logo is a cool play on a check mark, “Rosie The Riveter”-style strength depiction, and obviously the actual injection.

Wake County, N.C., going for the obvious. Sure, it’s a little redundant since there’s an actual band aid on the person, too. But, you should probably take that one off after a little bit. This one is a little longer-lasting.

Vaccine recipients in the U.K. got the royal treatment with these colorful stickers.
The fact I’m so excited I got a sticker with my second vaccine and am already emotional from the experience is just another level of extra. pic.twitter.com/Fr1qUgiO8X

Everything is bigger in Texas, but this sticker seems appropriately sized. It also uses that band aid motif as well as some local pride.
I’ll let compromise bear wear my sticker. I got the Covid-19 vaccine today. pic.twitter.com/K89eIPfOb1

Speaking of that local pride, if you can throw in some fandom with your design, that's a huge win.
Got a sticker AND a pen when getting my 2nd vaccine today. This is almost better than voting. pic.twitter.com/sE86sjHMdz

Finally, a bonus pen. Stickers are fun, but this is a longer-lasting reminder. Oh, and don’t worry, the actual vaccine doesn’t require a syringe that big (or any blood, for that matter).
