Which diagnosis code would you use to bill Medicare for the administration of a shingles vaccine? V05.4 (because shingles is caused by the same varicella virus that causes chickenpox) or V04.89 (immunization against a viral disease)?

We use v04.89 and have no problems with getting pd by any of our carriers.
