CDC Coronavirus Vaccination Card – What Does The Information On It Mean?

A grand total of approximately 170 million individuals have been vaccinated against the novel coronavirus in the United States, meaning that a similar amount received a version of the CDC white record card.

The CDC vaccination card will probably be the main proof of vaccination as the US is working hard to lessen the pandemic situation.

A lot of the information from the card is direct, but there are parts like the vaccine lot number, showing key details that aren’t commonly understood.

Let’s see what’s the matter with the rubrics on the card.


This rubric lets people know who made the vaccine. For US Citizens, that would be Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson.

Lot Number And Expiration Date

This area mentions a string of numbers and letters specific to the batch of vaccine from production into a patient’s arm.

That number is related to an expiration date, which shows when the batch of vaccines may begin degrading.

According to Pfizer and Moderna, their vaccines have a shelf life of up to six months.

J&J is working on studies to figure out how long the vaccine lasts.

Keep in mind that the expiration date isn’t related to how long vaccinated people are protected against the deadly virus.


This section is specific to the date of your shot, which is essential to know for when you need to return for a second shot if that is the case.

The CDC officially considers individuals are “fully vaccinated” only two weeks after the second shot.


The location where you had your shot is written in this section.

It is relevant in case the background of your vaccine selfie isn’t clear.

The Health Care Professional

This section includes the name/signature of the health care worker that took care of the patient.
