    When it comes to vaccines, fear can be strong but the facts are more powerful.

    The fact is that every year 31,000 women and men are diagnosed with cancer caused by HPV infection, yet most of these cancers could be prevented by HPV vaccination.

    The HPV vaccine is a safe and easy way to protect against these cancers and is most effective if given at the recommended age of 11 or 12. Help overcome hesitations about the vaccine by strongly recommending it to parents of preteen and teen patients on the same day and in the same way you recommend Tdap and meningococcal vaccines.

    Use Florida SHOTS
    Reminder/Recall to help keep your patients on track to complete the HPV series and increase protection.

    Reminder/recall is one of the many tools in Florida SHOTS that helps you boost immunization levels in your practice. Your office can create lists of patients who are due or overdue for immunizations and even create and print mailing labels. Keep track of your patients’ shots and never miss an opportunity to vaccinate! For step-by-step instructions on how to run a reminder/recall report in your office, check out our updated Reminder/Recall guide. Also available in Spanish.

    A new tool is now available in Florida SHOTS to help data upload participants monitor and track uploads to prevent errors and rejections. Users with access to the “System Transaction” menu will see the new “Upload Data Quality Report.” This report will allow users to select a date range and generate a spreadsheet with all the errors and warnings from that time period. The “Upload Data Quality Report” is an easy-to-use option to review data quality and will help practices quickly identify any problems and make the necessary corrections.

    This report will be covered in our monthly Data Quality Reports live webinar.  Click HERE to register!
