Big score at the vaccination place!

IMG_3416

Just had my second vaccine shot. Our county is well organized and a bunch of volunteers and professionals streamlined us through the process in no time. I’d brought 11 of these pins, and asked anyone passing me on to the next station if they wanted one. The response was more than I expected; they were all thrilled and put the pin on straight away. Soon I had people coming to me asking if they could have one. One person said someone else got a keychain (I’d brought other stuff to hand out) when I got my first shot and was thrilled to be a recipient this time. It made my day and theirs too I guess. If I’d brought a 100 they would still all be gone.

So, make as many of these as you want, and give away freely!

Obviously, only wear one if it is true!

Instructions

  • I used the Premium Icons and tools as well as Inkscape to create the design.
  • Print the pin on proofgrade medium basswood ply.
  • Print the injection needle on proofgrade medium clear acrylic.
  • Use a clear glue; I use Bob Smith Industries BSI-139H Clear Super-Gold Super Glue
  • I’ve used either magnetic name badge holders or adhesive pin backs.

I love this! People (myself included) seem to be very proud about having gotten their vaccine, so I’m not surprised this is such a big hit.

Awesome! I can see why they would be popular.

I’ve been passing out Dove chocolates to all the vaccinators and helpers associated with getting us our shots, and they have been very well received. :laughing:

Great Design! Did you highlight the Virus with a sharpie afterwards?
I’m definitely making a few of these for when I get my second shot!

Thanks! I used a plain red pen, but sharpie would work too, of course. Good luck with your second shot.

This is NICE, thank you! I do fiber arts with a bunch of people in the medical field. They are looking worn down, so I will make some and give them away. Always nice to recognize someone for their hard work and compassion.

It actually made going a lot of fun. People became animated and there were actual conversations, rather than being shuffled through the lines.
