    It’s a great time to ensure that your Florida SHOTS account and Personnel List are current and correct—especially for VFC Providers preparing for re-enrollment. Only users designated as Local Organization Administrators (LOAs) have the authority to update your Personnel List, add/end user access, set permissions, and manage your organization’s Florida SHOTS account. We are offering live training sessions throughout the month of March covering all aspects of this important responsibility. Sign up today!

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

    Seasonal flu activity is on the rise, both in Florida and across the U.S. The best way to prevent flu is to get vaccinated. The VFC Program has plenty of flu vaccine available to ship immediately, and VFC staff are prioritizing the approval of these orders.  Providers will not be held responsible for flu vaccine that expires in their storage units. Login to Florida SHOTS to place your order today!

    Florida SHOTS provides the “Shots Recorded” totals to VFC providers when placing VFC vaccine orders on the inventory confirmation page. This total may not always match the totals entered in the “Doses Administered” column, and in many cases this is due to the lot number not being entered correctly in the patient record. The most common errors are entering extra characters and entering the letter “O” instead zeros. 

    For users who are responsible for receiving new shipments in Florida SHOTS, it’s important to compare and confirm the lot numbers in the registry and on the actual vaccines before applying that receipt to your VFC inventory. If there are any differences, you can edit the information in Florida SHOTS before applying the receipt to your VFC inventory. And, remember: For Pentacel, MMR, VZV and Proquad, the lot number on the box should be used.
