Does your covid vax card have a lot expiration date or......


Recommended Posts

A COVID vaccine card should have the following information:

  • Patient full name
  • Patient date of birth
  • Patient number (not always filled in)

For each shot administered, there is a separate line collecting:

  • Brand of vaccine received (Pfizer, Moderna, J&J)
  • Lot number
  • Date administered
  • Issuing health authority/location

This might look something like "Pfizer EW9999, 12/31/2020, CVS #2222".

The back of the card has a space to record the date in which you should come back for a follow up dose (if applicable).  

I had my first shot at the local health department, which was just noted as "FCHD" (Fairfax County Health Department) and the second at a CVS pharmacy.

The expiration date does not matter for the patient record.  It only matters for before you get the shot.  Once administered, it is not going to expire.  If there was ever a question about the lot itself and if it was safe (not expired), they could find details about it by looking up the lot number.
