New Age Restriction for Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine

May 12, 2021

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved an amended Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from Pfizer-BioNTech, to allow their COVID-19 vaccine to be administrated to individuals 12 years of age or older. Effective for dates of service on or after May 10, 2021, Medi-Cal will accept and adjudicate claims for either dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, that are administered to any individual 12 years of age or older.

The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine web page is updated to reflect this change. All other billing policy remains unchanged.
