New CPT Codes for the COVID-19 Vaccines

AMA adds codes for the different coronavirus vaccines to the CPT
May 3, 2021

Healthcare providers across the United States have been working hard to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine to as many people as possible as quickly as possible. There are four different vaccines, three of which have already been granted emergency use authorization by the FDA. The American Medical Association (AMA) has issued CPT codes for each of the different vaccines

What Vaccines Are Available in the United States?

There are currently four vaccines that have been developed to protect people from the COVID-19 virus. These vaccines are:

  • Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine by Pfizer, Inc.
  • Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine by Moderna, Inc.
  • Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine by Janssen (Johnson & Johnson)
  • AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine by AstraZeneca

Of these, the Pfizer, Moderna, and Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccines have been granted emergency use authorization by the FDA in the United States. AstraZeneca has not yet been approved due to discrepancies in the data submitted to the FDA.
