With the start of a new year, there are some new requirements for logging VFC vaccine temperatures. Because accurate temperature history is such an important part of vaccine management, beginning January 1, 2015, the Florida VFC Program is requiring providers to log twice-daily vaccine temperatures in Florida SHOTS at least once every seven days. It’s important to be compliant with this new requirement, as failure to do so could result in a provider’s loss of VFC vaccine ordering privileges.
