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

    The fact is that many childhood diseases that had been virtually eliminated have returned with a vengeance—despite the fact that they are preventable.

    Measles is extremely contagious, and cases continue to spread across the country as immunization coverage levels fall due to misinformation and vaccine refusal. The MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine is safe and effective, and you can boost MMR vaccination rates one conversation at a time.

    Use Florida SHOTS to help keep your patients up-to-date for all necessary childhood and adolescent vaccinations.

    School may be out, but we’re continuing to offer live training webinars throughout the summer months to help you stay on top of your VFC inventory and beat the “back-to-school rush.” In June, we will focus on “Returning Expired/Wasted VFC Vaccines” to review the process for reporting wasted and returned VFC vaccines (including expired flu) within Florida SHOTS.

    And, as always, we will host our monthly “New User and Refresher Overview” webinar for new users or those who need a refresher and “Data Quality Reports” for data upload participants to ensure that your vaccine records are uploading successfully.

    The usefulness of Florida SHOTS depends on the quality of its data. A simple data entry mistake can initiate a cascade of negative consequences for your practice and even your patients. Accurate data is critical to nearly every aspect of the registry — from 680 forms to VFC inventory accountability to immunization coverage assessments. Avoid confusion by double checking that your records are correct. This simple step can help prevent unnecessary delays and ensure patients get the vaccinations they need.
