    For those providers who completed the seasonal flu pre-book in Florida SHOTS earlier in the year, you can now place orders directly using the “Order Request” page. If you did not complete the seasonal pre-book process, you will first need to place your pre-book by submitting your request to [email protected]

    Once this is completed, you will be able to place orders through Florida SHOTS. Click HERE to access the guide on how to place flu vaccine orders within Florida SHOTS or HERE for the Spanish version of the guide.

    As always, if you have specific questions, please contact the VFC Program via email at [email protected] or via phone at 1-877-888-7468.

    All adults, including pregnant women, should get the influenza (flu) vaccine each year to protect against seasonal flu. Every adult should have one dose of Tdap vaccine (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis or whooping cough) if they did not get Tdap as a teen, and then get the Td (tetanus and diphtheria) booster vaccine every 10 years. Pregnant women should receive a Tdap vaccine each time they are pregnant, preferably at 27 through 36 weeks.

    Adults 60 years and older are recommended to receive the shingles vaccine. Additionally, adults 65 and older are recommended to receive one or more pneumococcal vaccines. Some adults younger than 65 years with certain high-risk conditions are also recommended to receive one or more pneumococcal vaccinations.

    Adults may need other vaccines (such as hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and HPV) depending on their age, occupation, travel, medical conditions, vaccinations they have already received, or other considerations. For more information about adult vaccines click HERE. #NIAM
