  • Coming in 2016: Adolescent Immunization Coverage Assessment

    We are excited to announce that we are updating the immunization coverage reports in Florida SHOTS to include adolescent patients! These new reports will allow you to assess your immunization coverage levels and keep your patients up-to-date for all necessary childhood and adolescent vaccinations.

    Benefits of the new reports:

    • Enhanced reports for both childhood and adolescent patients
    • Providers now able to evaluate coverage for HPV, Tdap, and Meningitis, as well as all recommended and required childhood and adolescent vaccines

    To learn more about the new reporting options, register for an “Assess Your Immunization Coverage Levels” live training session.

  • Did my data count for meaningful use attestation?

    Many of the Registry users who participate in Florida SHOTS data upload are concerned about meaningful use attestation. So what’s the easiest way to tell whether your office has sent data? On the first day of each month, the registry automatically generates an email to send to email addresses that have applied for meaningful use attestation. The email tells the office whether it did or did not send data for the previous month.

    If your designated office email address did not receive an email this month to confirm your office sent data or you have questions about the email you received, contact the Florida SHOTS help desk, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern, at 877-888-7468 (SHOT).
