• COVID-19
  • Scheduling Vaccines

We have a patient who was vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine in another country. What do we do?

Everyone age 6 months and older is recommended to receive at least one dose of updated (2023–2024 Formula) COVID-19 vaccine, regardless of past vaccination history. Any updated (2023–2024 Formula) COVID-19 vaccine received in another country that is listed for emergency use by the World Health Organization (WHO-EUL) or authorized or licensed for use by the FDA counts toward fulfilling this recommendation.

CDC has provided additional details based upon age and immunocompromised status at its website: www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/clinical-considerations/interim-considerations-us-appendix.html#appendix-a.

A list of the vaccines that have already received WHO-EUL status is available here: https://extranet.who.int/prequal/vaccines/covid-19-vaccines-who-emergency-use-listing.
