Documentation states an adult patient was given the pediatric dose influenza vaccine
90655. Should I use 90655 code since it is the product that was actually given to the patient or should I change it to
90656 to reflect influenza virus administered to individuals 3 years and older?

It is better to clarify with the physician first rather than submitting a wrong code. You should only bill what is there documented.
