Redistribution

  • COVID-19 Vaccine Redistribution Infographic

Vaccine Recommendations

Vaccine Billing and Vaccine Codes

COVID-19 providers agree to administer vaccine regardless of an individual’s ability to pay and regardless of their coverage status, and may not seek any reimbursement, including through balance billing, from a vaccine recipient. 

Patient Education & Adverse Event Reporting

  • EUA Fact Sheet​
    • See "Product-Specific Materials" section for appropriate EUA fact sheets that must be provided to each vaccine recipient/caregiver.
    • Questions about EUAs? Review COVID-19 Vaccine EUA FAQs
  • Vaccination Record Cards
    • ​Providers must provide a COVID-19 vaccination record card to each vaccine recipient/parent/legal guardian. These will be included in ancillary kits shipped to provider offices. Complete these cards accurately, including second dose due date, and give to each patient.
    • Vaccination Record Card PDF (if extra is needed beyond that supplied in ancillary kit)
  • v-safe
    • v-safe is a new smartphone-based tool that uses text messaging and web surveys to provide health check-ins after a person receives a COVID-19 vaccination. It also reminds patients of any needed second vaccine dose.
    • Provide a v-safe information sheet to patients at the time of vaccination and encourage them to enroll and fill out the surveys when prompted to do so. 
    • A v-safe poster is also available to promote the program.
