Vaccine guidance for persons who received COVID-19 vaccines outside of the U.S.

Only people who have received all recommended doses of a U.S. FDA-authorized or World Health Organization (WHO)-listed COVID-19 vaccine are considered fully vaccinated for the purpose of public health guidance.

If you completed any of these COVID-19 vaccines series, you are considered fully vaccinated according to the current U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines.

If you took one dose of the Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine series but were not able to complete the series before arriving in the U.S., you should complete your series at the earliest recommended interval upon arrival. The second dose of Pfizer should be administered 21 days after the first injection. The second dose of Moderna should be administered 28 days after the first injection.

If you started any other CDC approved vaccine listed by the World Health Organization, but did not complete the series, you may begin your vaccines over when you arrive in the United States. You will be offered a complete U.S. FDA-approved vaccine series (must be at least 28 days since last COVID vaccine).

If you started or completed a COVID-19 vaccine that does not meet CDC criteria, you may begin your vaccines over when you arrive in the United States. You will be offered a complete U.S. FDA-approved vaccine series (must be at least 28 days since last COVID vaccine).
