On the topic of stickers, the hospital I visit frequently visit uses stickers to show employees that visitors have gone through the temperature check & symptom questioning at the entrance. These stickers are incredibly generic, and I doubt that staff even look at the stickers. Most likely, they assume that visitors have done the temp check because its at the entrance, and it would be basically impossible for someone to sneak by unnoticed.

I visit the hospital frequently because it has a gym. In my mind, a few of the COVID policies enforced by the hospital are a bit overkill (in the gym, at least). As for the rest of the hospital, it only makes since to keep security tight when SW Missouri is possibly the worst area in the country when it comes to COVID, with a 40% vaccination rate. Specifically, the gym does not allow spotting a fellow lifter because that would not be proper physical distancing. If you ask me, getting crushed by at LEAST 50 pounds of metal may do more damage than COVID in most people.

When my son and I were interviewed by the local TV station upon coming out of a vaccination clinic a few months ago, I had no place to link to the video on here, because all the COVID threads had been locked.

Isn't there a "roadgeeks on TV" thread somewhere around here?

Concerning stickers, I'm not sure what the point is, just as I'm not sure what the point of "I voted" stickers is. I suppose they're a novelty; they were given out for years in many places but our precincts only started giving them out a scant couple of years ago.

If you're looking to a sticker as proof of vaccination (see Roadgeekteen's advocacy for requiring the shot to participate in life's activities) -- well, a little online research will yield a PDF file of a blank covid vaccination card (the original host site got taken down but it's archived on the Wayback Machine), along with instructions on how to fill it out. What one does with that information and a pack of card stock, a pair of scissors, and a collection of vaccination card images gleaned from all those people who were gleefully posting pictures on social media and the information contained on those images, is up to them.

I support vaccine passports.

So, you're saying we should create second class citizens who can't get the shot due to other medical reasons?  Not smart IMO.

Eh, they can be identified as such through the same documentation.

They can carry a separate medical card.
