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!
