    Florida SHOTS is aware of an issue with printing forms and reports with users receiving a "404" error. This problem was caused by a security update from Microsoft on 6/13. We are monitoring the issue for resolution from Microsoft but the only option for users is to try using Florida SHOTS with Edge, Chrome, or Firefox. Additionally, we recommend checking to see that "Compatibility View" is not enabled for anything containing "flshots.com" (Tools > Compatibility View Settings). For larger organizations, this may be controlled by centralized network/IT policy and may appear as "Enterprise Mode" being enabled (office building icon to the left of the address bar).

    For information on the changes made regarding certifying Form 680s, please review the documentation HERE

    For further questions or assistance, please call the FLSHOTS Helpdesk at 877-888-7468 (SHOT).

    With the changes to the DH680 form certification process, now is a great time to ensure that your Florida SHOTS account and personnel list are current and correct. In order to electronically certify and sign a 680 form, a current and clear medical license is required to be listed on the provider’s Personnel Maintenance page in Florida SHOTS. Only Local Organization Administrators (LOAs) have the authority to update the personnel list, add/end user access, set permissions, and manage their organization’s Florida SHOTS account. Check out our recorded webinar HERE for step-by-step instructions!

    If you need to add or change a LOA on your account, you can contact the Florida SHOTS Help Desk at 877-888-7468 (SHOT) to make those adjustments.

    Also, make sure to check the “Current Announcements” on the Florida SHOTS login page for the most up-to-date important announcements!

    The Florida SHOTS “Current VIS Dates” guide was updated to include the most recent Td vaccine information statement. The wording about talking to your doctor “if you have seizures or another nervous system problem” was removed. This precaution applies to the Tdap vaccine, but not to Td.
