  • Live Webinar for Vaccines for Children (VFC) Providers

    Accurately maintaining your VFC inventory is vital to your participation in the program. During our live webinars this month, we will demonstrate how to generate the “Aging Vaccine Report” to identify vaccines that have expired or will be expiring, and reporting wasted and returned vaccines (including expired flu doses). We will also discuss the most common errors that can cause discrepancies with the “Shots Recorded” totals. Click below to register!

  • Reminder for Data Exchange Participants

    All data exchange participants will need to use real-time web services. With web services, uploads occur automatically, so as soon as Florida SHOTS receives the records from your EHR, the shots are processed immediately! This means your office can instantly create and print the DH Form 680 and immunization history forms without duplicate data entry.

    If your office is currently using a “batch” process to upload your immunizations, make sure to contact your software provider to ask about real-time and bi-directional web services. Your EHR company will need to move to real-time web services for your shots to upload and post. As we move through the process of transitioning all uploads to web services, our Florida SHOTS Data Team will be working closely with practices to ensure a smooth transition.
