Before Administering Vaccine

Review patient’s COVID-19 vaccination history.

Always screen patients for contraindications and precautions before administering a vaccine, even if the same vaccine was administered previously. 

A patient’s health status or the recommendations for contraindications and precautions may have changed since the last dose was given.

Give the patient the EUA Fact Sheet for Recipients and Caregivers before each dose.
