Are the vaccines a state provided vaccine (you do not purchase the vaccine)? If you do not purchase the vaccine you will bill the vaccine code with a $0.01 charge amount and the administration code.
Example:
90633 (Hep A) $ .01
90460 (admin.) $30.00
Hope this helps.

Use 90460 only if counseling on the vaccine is documented otherwise use 90471 for the first one and 90472 for each additional. In some states if you are administering a state supplied vaccine to a covered patient then you also enter a 0 charge for the administration. Be sure you know the rules in your state for state supplied vaccines. Otherwise you bill the vaccine with the dollar amount per your fee schedule and then appropriate admin fee.
