Singapore’s latest COVID-19 trend: Vaccination status t-shirts
Makes it easier for F&B staff and safe distancing ambassadors to check if you’re vaccinated, huh?
As Singapore moves to reopen establishments and public spaces, checks are conducted to ensure those dining in are either fully-vaccinated or have tested negative for COVID-19.
Some Singaporeans have found a way to show their vaccination status without any hassle – by wearing it.
Instagram user HY Neo and influencer Jade Rasif are among those who have turned their vaccination report into a t-shirt.
Their t-shirts – which look like the vaccination report you receive on a piece of paper after taking the second dose – show the date of vaccine effectiveness, the place where they got vaccinated and the types of vaccine they received.
HY Neo wrote in his post on Aug 11: “You have to prove you are already vaccinated. So I printed this in my factory. (These) two days dining-in is a breeze. No question asked. Benefits of vaccine. Don’t hesitate, vaccine and stay safe.”
Jade Rasif added in her post: “Tired of taking out your vaccine certificate everywhere? My shirt is proof I use 101% of my brain.”
User @latteparents commented on HY Neo’s post: “This is cool! Kindly share order link 😄”. They were among the 29 similar comments requesting for orders in his comment section. HY Neo also left a WhatsApp link for them to send their orders to for the price of $12.
Similarly, Jade also received comments asking where she bought the t-shirt from.
While it is certainly an innovative idea to show everyone that you are vaccinated, do note that it is still a requirement for F&B establishments to check your TraceTogether app for your vaccination status.
But hey, there’s definitely no harm if you want to proudly declare your vaccinated status!
