I'm not sure about validity of covid pass in the US but in EU your vaccine privileges are valid for 12 months and it counts from the day you get vaccinated. After 12 months you are no longer considered as vaccinated as your covid pass becomes invalid.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought that both Poland and the Czech Republic were open to vaccinated tourists.
