The American Medical Association this week published a Current Procedural Terminology code for providers administering a booster dose of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. The Food and Drug Administration Oct. 20 authorized a single booster dose of the J&J and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines for eligible individuals, and authorized eligible recipients of all three authorized COVID-19 vaccines to receive a different COVID-19 vaccine for their initial and booster doses. AMA released a CPT code for the Moderna booster last month. The CPT code set uses unique codes for each authorized COVID-19 vaccine and dose, enabling it to support the option to mix-and-match initial and booster doses for the vaccines.
