If you're not already vaccinated against COVID-19, Valentino's latest drop could be able to send even the craziest anti-vaxxer to the clinic.

Earlier this year, Pierpaolo Piccioli was intrigued by a set of "Vaccinated" hoodies created by Cloney, and ended up purchasing all five hoodies that were available, and even gifted one to Lady Gaga. Now, the house of Valentino has created its own statement hoodies together with the creator, reading "(V)Vaccinated" – for charity, of course.

All net profits from the limited-edition hoodie will be donated to UNICEF in support of its global COVAX Program, accelerating development, production, as well as access to the COVID-19 vaccine as well as tests and treatments.

“Getting vaccinated has become the most effective way to fight this global pandemic, as well as a symbol of respect for others and social responsibility. One cannot hide behind the concept of freedom by deciding not to get vaccinated," said Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli, adding, "Unfortunately, not all countries have equal access to COVID-19 vaccines. With this collaboration, Valentino supports UNICEF in the delivery efforts of life-saving COVID-19 vaccines.”

The release makes Valentino the first house to publically take a stand and encourage vaccinations and comes at an important time when celebrities are taking to the internet and sharing why they won't be getting the COVID-19 jab. We're looking at you, Nicki Minaj, and Doutzen Kroes.

“Ensuring global equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines, particularly for frontline health workers and those at risk, is the best chance we have to save lives, ensure economies can restart, and provide families with access to the health, education, and protection services they need, that is why we are asking everyone, everywhere to join the race to end the pandemic,” said Carla Haddad Mardini, UNICEF’s Director of Private Fundraising and Partnerships.

The (V)Vaccinated hoodie is set to drop within the next few days, so make sure to keep your eyes out as flexing this Valentino piece is much easier than bringing around your vaccine card. And if you still haven't gotten your shot, there's still time to run to the vaccination center before the hoodie drops. Like Pierpaolo said, getting jabbed is a symbol of respect for others and social responsibility.
