With the latest registry release, we have received many inquiries regarding patients showing up as “overdue” for the influenza vaccine. Each flu season starts on July 1st of the current year and ends on June 30th of the following year. We understand that 2018-2019 flu vaccines may not be available for a few more weeks, but want to reinforce the importance of getting patients vaccinated at every opportunity.
Florida SHOTS recently made several updates and enhancements as part of release 2018.2. To view a summary of the changes, CLICK HERE.
