(CNN) – approx 170 million people They were vaccinated against covid-19 in the United States, which means the same number has received a copy of the white card from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC, for its English acronym).
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) vaccination card will likely be the primary evidence of future vaccination, as the United States continues to ease pandemic restrictions. Much of the information on the card is straightforward, but other parts, such as the vaccine batch number, refer to basic, less-known details.
Below we have attached a sample CDC vaccination card so that we can better review the details of the process.
In the United States, there are three COVID-19 vaccines licensed for emergency use: Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson. Pfizer and Moderna are two-dose vaccines, while J&J is a single dose.
2) Batch number and expiration date
The batch number is a series of numbers and letters that tracks this specific group of vaccines from production to your arm. This batch number correlates with the expiration date, which, like food packaging, indicates when this batch of vaccines may begin to deteriorate. Pfizer s modern They say their vaccines are valid for up to six months, while Johnson & Johnson She says she is conducting studies to determine the duration of her vaccination.
This expiration date is not appropriate for the time when people who have been vaccinated are protected from coronavirus. (It is still not clear.). Instead, the expiration date is particularly useful for governments and vaccine suppliers, who have to coordinate the purchase and use of large quantities of vaccines during their limited shelf life.
This is likely to become more important in the coming months, as some of the first doses of the vaccine begin to reach their expiration date. For example, South Sudan announces plans to phase out 59,000 doses of vaccines Donated by AstraZeneca which expired in April.
The vaccination history is important to know when to vaccinate again, if needed, and when to ‘fully vaccinate’. The CDC believes that peopleFully vaccinated» Two weeks after the date of the last injection of the vaccine series.
In addition, dose time may also be included because the CDC advises people to remain under observation by medical professionals for 15 minutes after receiving a vaccination, as a precaution in case Rare allergic reaction.

In recent weeks, many mass vaccination centers, such as the Javits Center in New York, They began to reduce their activities as the demand for vaccines decreased.
