The American Medical Association (AMA) announced an editorial update to the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code set to include new product and administration codes assigned to the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for children 6 months to under 5 years of age.

The provisional CPT codes – 91308, 0081A, and 0082A – will be effective for use when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) grants an Emergency Use Authorization to the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for children 6 months to under 5 years of age.

The CPT codes are as follows:
