Thanks for starting your Friday with 10 Tampa Bay Brightside.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Hello and good morning! It's Friday!

Here's what you need to know about heading into the weekend. 

Lose your vaccine card? No problem!

If you've received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, you also got your vaccine card. 

It gets you in the door for your second dose (if necessary), and it could be valuable in the future when you may be asked to show proof of vaccination. Someone at some point probably told you, "don't lose it!"

But what if you did lose it? Or it was accidentally destroyed? 

Don't panic. Here's what you should do next.💉
