Make Data Entry Quicker and Easier Than Ever!
Florida SHOTS now supports scanning of 2D barcodes found on vaccine products, VIS forms, and driver's licenses. Scanning these 2D barcodes allows users to easily add patient demographics and vaccine information within patient records.
With a compatible scanner*, you can scan the barcode on a patient’s driver’s license and a patient search will automatically be performed. Additionally, to help with documenting vaccine administration, you are able to scan the vaccine barcode (on the vial or single dose syringe), or the VIS form barcode.
If your office is interested in utilizing this feature, check out our Quick Tips for 2D Barcode Scanning Guide. This guide offers step-by-step instructions and information to get your office up and running using the 2D barcode functionality within Florida SHOTS.
*Barcode readers must support the “PDF417” standard and “GS1 DataMatrix” standard to properly function for these features.
Vaccines for Children (VFC) participants can now order flu vaccines in Florida SHOTS. Please keep in mind that you will need to contact the VFC Program if you did not pre-book or would like to order more doses than the quantity listed on the ‘Doses Available’ column. Our guide will take you step by step on how to submit order and is also available in Spanish.
