    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.

    Since 2018, there have been more than 22,000 cases of hepatitis A in the U.S. and more than 2,500 cases in Florida. On November 28, 2018, the Florida Department of Health (FDOH) issued a hepatitis A health advisory emphasizing awareness and prevention through vaccination. Make sure to check the Florida SHOTS Immunization Status page to ensure your patients are up-to-date with all ACIP required and recommended vaccines!

    The VFC Program has updated the flu pre-book ordering status to limited. * This means that providers who pre-booked may place their own flu vaccine orders not to exceed their pre-book amount. Flu vaccine doses will need to be requested through Florida SHOTS by using the Order Requests page. It is anticipated more vaccine will become available soon so those providers who did not pre-book may request flu vaccines.

    *Please Note: Pre-book is now closed. If you did not pre-book, you may contact the VFC Program at [email protected] to request doses be placed in pre-book for you. Please include your VFC PIN.
