Lincoln couple sells pins for those who have been vaccinated

LINCOLN, R.I. (WLNE)- A couple from Lincoln is selling pins to those that have been fully vaccinated.

Nathan and Melissa Kocon came up with the idea as a way for people to physically show that they’ve been fully vaccinated.

The pins come in multiple designs, and are made 100% in Rhode Island.

Since starting the business, the couple has sold over 15,000 pins nationwide.

Their website,, has received orders from as far away as Hawaii and Puerto Rico.

“Seeing someone else you know vaccinated encourages others to do the same,” said Nathan.

Each pin costs $10, with a portion of each sale going towards more pins that will be donated to hospitals and frontline workers.
