  • Immunization Forms at Your Fingertips

    Did you know that only vaccines that are required by Florida law are recorded on a D.H. Form 680? If you would like to give your patients a complete listing of all of the vaccines they’ve received, simply print the Florida SHOTS “Immunization History Form,” which will reflect non-required shots such as meningitis and HPV vaccines. For more detail about all of the forms available, you can view our training video here.

    Data Upload Log Reports: Data upload participants are encouraged to check their Upload Log Reports in order to ensure vaccinations are uploading properly to the registry. In this webinar we will cover everything you need to know to monitor your uploads for errors and review your transaction history.

    Florida SHOTS Reports: Participants will learn how to properly create, view, and print reports. Topics include: reports to view vaccine usage over specified time periods, religious exemption report, and the patient status report.

  • Need a Status Update?

    As patients come in for back-to-school visits, make sure to check their “Immunization Status” in Florida SHOTS. This screen allows you to easily determine immunization needs based on their vaccination history, age, and medical contraindications. You’ll also see alerts if they are due or overdue for any of the required or recommended vaccines—including minimum and recommended due dates! Florida SHOTS simplifies complex immunization schedules to help you keep your patients on track and up-to-date.

  • Certifying Form 680s

    To avoid delayed school or child care entry, it’s important to understand the differences in each choice on the D.H. Form 680 and provide your patients the correct version. Remember:

    Part A is for patients who are up-to-date for their age and meet the age-appropriate school requirements for grades K-12; or for the 7th-grade requirements only.

    Part B is for temporary medical exemptions—an expiration date is required (generally 15 days after the next scheduled appointment). If a Part B is chosen and the patient has received all the vaccinations they can for now (i.e., they are currently up-to-date), the system will pre-populate a suggested expiration date equal to 15 days after the earliest next recommended due date amongst all series that are not complete.

    Part C is used for permanent medical exemptions including contraindications.
