First of all question is not clear. I think not CPT 90658, but CPT 90698 has 5 components and you could use this with 90460/90461.

•Report code 90460 for each vaccine administered.
•For vaccines with multiple components (combination vaccines), report code 90461 in conjunction with code 90460 for each additional component in a given vaccine when counseling is performed, as each component requires specific counseling.
•The counseling issue does not apply to codes 90471- 90474 as they are reported per vaccine and by route of administration.
•Check with payers to determine whether these services require reporting a single code per line with modifiers for repeated codes or whether reporting in units is allowed.
