    Default Depends
    What you bill depends on the brand of vaccine.

    Q2035 for Afluria
    Q2036 for Flulaval
    Q2037 for Fluvirun
    Q2038 for Fluzone
    Q2039 for non of the above or not specified

    These are of course only for 3+ yrs old, IM injection.
    Also only for when billing to Medicare.
    Otherwise you would continue to use: 90655,90656,90657,90658,90660,90662.

    Hope that helps.
