Missing Vaccine Records

If you’re a data upload participating office and you notice a patient record is missing a vaccine, it’s important to research the problem to correct it and possibly prevent future errors. There are a few possible causes, and most can be easily fixed in your software. For example, the vaccine record may have been rejected due to sending the incorrect CVX code. Or perhaps your office forgot to include the patient’s address in the file.

By running an Upload Log Report in Florida SHOTS, you can quickly determine the reason for the rejection and get it corrected. You can access the recorded webinar to learn how to run your Upload Log Report HERE.
