This is addressed in the 3/24/21 revision of the AHA/AHIMA FAQ: "it would be appropriate to report a code(s) for side effects when the patient requires additional treatment or medical care such as monitoring or treatment
for the side effects. Assign the code for the nature of the effect (e.g. fever) followed by code T50.B95A, Adverse effect of other viral vaccines, initial encounter."
