Office supply stores offer to laminate COVID-19 vaccine cards for free

Department of Defense

National office supply store chains are offering free lamination services to customers for their coronavirus vaccine record cards issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 

Office Depot, OfficeMax and Staples this week announced plans to allow customers with a vaccine card to get it laminated free of charge to protect the document from getting damaged. 

Through at least July 25, customers who walk into Office Depot and OfficeMax store locations nationwide with their card indicating at least one dose of one of the federally-approved coronavirus vaccines will be able to have it laminated. 

No purchase is required to receive the service, according to Office Depot’s promotional flyer, and customers must present the coupon code: 52516714. 

Office supply retailer Staples is also joining in on the service. While several news outlets reported that the Staples offer will last until April 3, a company spokesperson told CNN that the offer currently does not have an end date for all of its U.S. locations. 

The Hill has reached out to Staples for more information on the timeline of the promotion. 

Staples customers may use the coupon code 81450 to get their vaccine card laminated. 

The office supply retailers are just some of the latest companies to offer exclusive deals and products to Americans who have already been vaccinated. 

Krispy Kreme this week announced that Americans who present a COVID-19 card may get a free original glazed donut every day of 2021 at any of its more than 350 U.S. stores. 

Other companies have promoted services to assist in vaccine distribution, with Lyft and Uber both offering free or discounted rides to vaccination centers. 

We’ve been focused on helping ensure people don’t lose their chance at getting a vaccine because they lack transportation,” an Uber spokesman told The Wall Street Journal.

According to the CDC, roughly 27 percent of the U.S. population has received at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine as of Friday, with nearly 15 percent fully vaccinated.
