“Vaccinated” Jewelry Is A Thing—Because We Want People To Know We’re Not A-Holes

Last week, it was announced by the CDC and President Biden himself that, if you’re fully vaccinated, you don’t have to wear a mask or practice social distance. Of course, there’s a lot to unpack here, like, what if people who aren’t vaccinated decide to forgo masks? What about kids, who may not be vaccinated? What about businesses who still require people to wear masks? “I think people are misinterpreting, thinking that this is a removal of a mask mandate for everyone. It’s not,” Dr. Anthony Fauci recently stated.

Fauci says the CDC stated that, “If you are vaccinated, you can feel safe — that you will not get infected either outdoors or indoors. It did not explicitly say that unvaccinated people should abandon their masks.”

With all that said! As someone who is fully vaccinated (and doesn’t have anyone else living in my home who isn’t vaccinated), the thought of going out and not wearing a mask feels weird. At the moment, since I live in California, I still have to wear mine until June 15, but after that? According to reports, Californians will be allowed to do just about anything without a mask if they’re completely vaccinated. My main concern? I don’t want people to think I’m a lying asshole if I go out without a mask.

Which is why I thought of a brilliant solution: I can put on some jewelry that literally lets people know I’m vaccinated. Sure, I could still a lying asshole with some new bling, but at least I’m trying. And some pieces I found online that are really cute. And functional! Behold:
