what is the code for the adminstration of a vaccine is it still 90460 and mult 90461

Yes.
Use 90460, +90461 Through Age 18

Because counseling for adolescents can involve as much time as counseling on vaccines for younger children, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended

that the age limitation on the vaccine administration with counseling codes be raised. New codes (90460, Immunization administration through 18 years of age via any route of administration, with counseling by physician or other qualified health care professional; first vaccine/toxoid component and +90461, Immunization administration through 18 years of age via any route of administration, with counseling by physician or other qualified health care professional; each additional vaccine/toxoid component [List separately in addition to code for primary procedure]) extend vaccine administration with counseling to patients though 18 years of age.
