Thank you for your question.
Can you provide the denial reason? This will allow us to further research.

denying for bundling - saying the wellness is being bundled to the admin of vaccine

If you are administering a vaccine/immunization, you would want to use code 90471.
90471:Immunization administration (includes percutaneous, intradermal, subcutaneous, or intramuscular injections); 1 vaccine (single or combination vaccine/toxoid)
See note for 96372: Therapeutic, prophylactic, or diagnostic injection (specify substance or drug); subcutaneous or intramuscular
(For administration of vaccines/toxoids, see 90471, 90472, 96365, 96366)
