The individual filenames included in this distribution contain the publication date (20220429)

Release Notes: This release includes updates for COVID-19 related Recipient/Caregiver Fact Sheet Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) codes and maps. 


Release notes are designed as a guide to highlight changes that have been made to the vaccine codes since the last publication. They should not be used as the primary source of code information. The vaccine code files themselves should be utilized.

COVID-19 Related VIS Code Updates

  1. NEW: Codes for four New EUA Recipient/Caregiver Fact Sheet VIS are provided in anticipation of potential FDA authorization for new COVID-19 vaccine products. Note: The Edition dates are estimates only and will change once there is FDA authorization and publication of the fact sheets. The URLs are not currently linked to any document fact sheets. There will be a URL redirect added once the FDA authorization and document site is identified
    • UPDATES: The description for the current EUA Recipient/Caregiver Fact Sheet VIS for the “COVID-19 Pfizer BioNTech EUA Recipient-Caregiver Fact Sheet- Pediatric 5yrs to <12 yrs” has been updated to provide clarity and consistency with the age ranges noted on other pediatric Fact Sheets
    Information and links to the COVID-19 Provider and Recipient-Caregiver Fact Sheets can be found on the following FDA site: COVID-19 Vaccines | FDA

    The CDC VIS Code Set incorporates codes for COVID-19 vaccine Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) Recipient/Caregiver Fact Sheets.

    CDC-authored VIS documents will not be available for COVID-19 vaccines while under EUA. Under EUA, the FDA requires a vaccine-specific Fact Sheet for Recipients and Caregivers (EUA Recipient/Caregiver Fact Sheet) be provided to vaccine recipients or their caregivers (similar to Vaccine Information Statements for licensed vaccines). Each EUA Recipient/Caregiver Fact Sheet is developed by the manufacturer and authorized by the FDA. The COVID-19 vaccine related codes in this code set release are provided in anticipation of potential vaccine availability under EUA. If the vaccines are not authorized, these codes will be retired.

    In addition to the FDA’s EUA Fact Sheets for Recipients/Caregivers, the CDC may provide additional or updated clinical guidance for products under EUA. See the following link for the latest CDC COVID-19 vaccine clinical guidance: Clinical Guidance for COVID-19 Vaccination | CDC

    Update Details:

    1. New Fact Sheet Codes: “COVID-19 Moderna EUA Recipient-Caregiver Fact Sheet - Pediatric 6yrs to <12yrs”
    2. New Fact Sheet Codes: “COVID-19 Moderna EUA Recipient-Caregiver Fact Sheet - Pediatric 6mo to <6yrs”
    3. New Fact Sheet Codes: “COVID-19 Novavax EUA Recipient-Caregiver Fact Sheet”
    4. New Fact Sheet Codes: “COVID-19 Sanofi-GSK EUA Recipient-Caregiver Fact Sheet - Booster”
    5. Updated Fact Sheet:
      • Fact Sheet Description changed to: “COVID-19 Pfizer BioNTech EUA Recipient-Caregiver Fact Sheet- Pediatric 5yrs to <12 yrs”
      • Last Updated date: 4/29/2022
      • All other information remains the same

    The above updates impact the following three VIS code files:

    • CVX Mapped to VIS
    • VIS Barcode Lookup Table
    • VIS URL Table

    The table on CDC’s COVID-19 Related Vaccine Codes website: “COVID-19 Emergency Use Authorization Recipient and Caregiver Fact Sheets,” has also been updated to reflect these changes.

    Important Considerations:

    The CDC is working to facilitate documentation of having provided an EUA Fact Sheet for Recipients/Caregivers in electronic medical records/immunization information systems (EMRs/IISs). As such, the VIS code set is being used to provide the EUA Recipient/Caregiver Fact Sheet codes for EHRs/EMRs for use in a manner analogous to the electronic system and workflow documentation of VIS. As with VIS documents, the COVID-19 Vaccine Recipient/Caregiver Fact Sheets will incorporate the CDC’s scannable 2D barcode in the Fact Sheet document. The numeric string for a CDC 2D barcode is included for each EUA Fact Sheet record in the data code set for this release.
