    The COVID-19 vaccine pre-book system opened in Florida SHOTS on 3/30/2021. Only the Enrollee, Primary VFC/VFA Coordinator or Back-up Coordinator can enter the pre-book information into Florida SHOTS. 

    We recommend you determine the number of doses based on the number of patients served by your provider site. COVID-19 vaccine is shipped in multi-dose vials containing 5 doses (Pfizer, Janssen) or 10 doses (Moderna). For example, if your office does not have the ability to vaccinate 10 patients daily, do NOT request the Moderna vaccine.

    You should also ensure that your office has sufficient storage space to store the vaccine and that the proper type of storage unit is available for ultra-cold (Pfizer), conventional frozen (Moderna) or refrigerated (Johnson & Johnson) vaccines.

    Access instructions on how to complete the pre-booking process HERE.
