Codes and Eligibility for COVID-19 Booster Shots

  • November 18, 2021

    The FDA approved the Moderna and Janssen/Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines for booster doses on October 21. The Moderna booster is a half dose, so it uses a different vaccine and administration code. 

    People age 65+ or with underlying health conditions are eligible six months after their second dose, the same as the Pfizer booster. The Janssen/Johnson & Johnson booster is available to anyone 18 and over who received this vaccine two or more months after their first dose and uses a unique administration code.

    The booster dose code is different from the third dose for immune-compromised individuals. The federal government is currently covering the cost of the vaccines and you are only able to bill for the administration of the vaccine.
