With the latest Florida SHOTS release, you no longer have to call the Help Desk each time you need to access a patient record that has a name considered as invalid (e.g., a form of “Boy” or “Test,” etc.). The Florida SHOTS Help Desk can now complete an override to confirm that the patient record is valid and can remain open. Please contact the Florida SHOTS Help Desk to have the override completed if you have a patient that needs it.
We’ve updated Florida SHOTS to include the new 2-dose schedules for HPV and Trumenba, which were recently approved by Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). You can find the details on the dosing recommendations HERE.
Every organization enrolled with Florida SHOTS has a designated Local Organization Administrator (LOA) responsible for managing the account. In this month’s live webinar sessions, we are focusing on the basic responsibilities of the LOA such as managing your personnel list, adding/ending user accounts, and setting permissions.

We’ve developed a variety of resources that will help your practice understand, explain, and advocate for the Florida SHOTS registry. On www.flshotsusers.com you can print and post this flyer to let your patients and families know that their records are protected in Florida SHOTS. We also have an entire section of our site for sharing with parents — http://flshotsusers.com/parents-guardians — where they can find FAQs, learn about required vaccines, and even print their child’s 680 form!
Calibration certificates for the VFC Log Tag Thermometers are valid for around two years before expiring. Florida SHOTS will notify your office 30 to 60 days prior to the expiration date, and you will also see a red exclamation mark next to the “Calibration Log” menu option on the “Temperature Log” page in Florida SHOTS. Click HERE to download step-by-step instructions on getting your Log Tag recalibrated.
