    Accurately maintaining your Vaccines for Children (VFC) inventory is vital to your participation in the program. During this live webinar, we will demonstrate how to complete inventory adjustments to report wasted/expired vaccines, vaccine transfers and generate the "Aging Vaccine Report" to identify vaccines that have expired or will be expiring. We will also review the Shots Recorded Report to touch on the most common errors that can cause inventory discrepancies.

    For providers using the spreadsheet functionality to upload COVID-19 vaccine data, make sure to download a new COVID-19 spreadsheet template from Florida SHOTS every day, as changes may occur routinely. Only the last update of the spreadsheet will upload successfully and older versions will no longer be accepted. Additionally, as noted in early February, make sure to see Instructions and updated Ethnicity tab.

    Florida SHOTS is working to determine and identify underserved areas for COVID-19 vaccination across the state. One of the ways we can do this is by healthcare providers recording patient demographics and including ethnicity. To assist in this important effort, it is now required to record ethnicity by indicating "HISPANIC OR HAITIAN ORIGIN" as Yes; Enter "NOT HISPANIC OR HAITIAN ORIGIN" as No; Enter "UNKNOWN" as U.

    Since many patients are returning for their 2nd COVID-19 vaccine dose, this is an opportunity to record that data and upload it into Florida SHOTS and we will update the demographics for patients who were missing it previously.
