    Question Coding Vaccines reactions

    AAPC: Back to School
    In need of help with coding for a vaccine reaction. The doctor just wants to code the reaction but is not happy using the complications code of 999.5. Is there any other code(s) that we could use? The patient just has a large knot at the injection site. No other symptoms. Thanks for any information you can give.
