  • Florida SHOTS Live Webinar: VFC Tips

    We understand that users may have questions about specific Vaccines for Children (VFC) functions within Florida SHOTS. During this webinar, we will review how to add/edit calibration certificates to your vaccine storage units, provide tips for VFC ordering, and generate the “Aging Vaccine Report” to identify vaccines that have expired or about to expire.

  • Avoid Duplicate Records

    From time to time, you may come across duplicate patient records in Florida SHOTS. Did you know that are a few things that you can do to prevent them from being created in the first place? Remember the 3 Cs for patient records: Complete. Correct. Current.

    Providing full names and up-to-date addresses and completing as many fields as possible allows Florida SHOTS to cross-reference the information and add updates to existing records.  Also remember to click on “Release Patient Record” when you’re done to prevent locked records and uploading errors.

  • Resources for Parents

    Did you know that Florida SHOTS has information and tools specifically for parents and guardians? You can refer parents and guardians to our Parents & Guardians page where they can:

    • Download certification of immunization (DH Form 680)
    • Learn about required shots for school/childcare 
    • Find the nearest participating healthcare provider location
    • Get answers to FAQs, and more!
  • Florida SHOTS Training Resources

    Florida SHOTS users have several training resources available, whether you are new to using the system or just need a refresher.

These include recorded webinars, step-by step guides, and a training system which is a functional copy of the system to practice using the different features.
