Code 90654 (influenza virus vaccine, split virus, preservative-free, for intradermal use) was accepted at the June 2010 Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) Editorial Panel meeting for the 2012 CPT manual production cycle. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval pending indicator () was removed from this code following notification of achievement of FDA approval status for this product in May 2011.

Therefore, please make the following corrections to “Changes in CPT Codes for 2012” on pages 1 and 2 of the November 2011 AAP Pediatric Coding Newsletter™ (volume 7, no. 2):

On page 1, in the last bulleted item under Immunization Administration for Vaccines/Toxoids, please remove the second sentence.

On page 2, please remove the lightning-bolt symbol () that precedes code 90654.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
