AMA adds CPT code for third dose of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine

The American Medical Association on July 30 published a Current Procedural Terminology code for the potential administration of a third dose of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine.

The third dose's code is 0003A. The code will be used only if the third dose is cleared by the FDA, but the AMA published the update to ensure electronic systems are prepared should the booster shot receive approval.

"We are confident that federal health agencies will continue to review emerging evidence on a potential third dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine," AMA President Gerald Harmon, MD, said in a news release. "The CPT code set stands ready to meet the immediate needs of the health system if third dose shots are considered necessary."
