EUI Fact Sheets for Recipients
The Emergency Use Instructions (EUI) fact sheets are for the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. These EUIs provide information about emergency use of FDA-approved medical products that may not be included in or differ in some way from the information provided in the FDA-approved labeling.
These Fact Sheets describe Emergency Use Instructions that have been used by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to provide information about the primary, additional, and booster doses of the COVID-19 vaccine by Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna, including longer interval between primary doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, use in certain individuals who received primary vaccination with certain COVID-19 vaccines not FDA-authorized or approved for such use, and in immunocompromised individuals who received one primary dose of the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine.
