COVID-19 Vaccine Pre-book is Now Available!

The COVID-19 vaccine pre-book system opened in Florida SHOTS on 3/30/2021. Only the Enrollee, Primary VFC/VFA Coordinator or Back-up Coordinator can enter the pre-book information into Florida SHOTS. 

We recommend you determine the number of doses based on the number of patients served by your provider site. COVID-19 vaccine is shipped in multi-dose vials containing 5 doses (Pfizer, Janssen) or 10 doses (Moderna). For example, if your office does not have the ability to vaccinate 10 patients daily, do NOT request the Moderna vaccine.

You should also ensure that your office has sufficient storage space to store the vaccine and that the proper type of storage unit is available for ultra-cold (Pfizer), conventional frozen (Moderna) or refrigerated (Johnson & Johnson) vaccines.

Access instructions on how to complete the pre-booking process HERE.

Florida SHOTS Data Quality

Now more than ever, it is important to ensure that complete and accurate information is entered in Florida SHOTS for persons receiving a vaccination. Provide full names, up-to-date addresses, carefully input lot numbers, and complete as many fields as possible. This allows Florida SHOTS to provide you accurate reports to assist you to manage vaccine inventory as well as keeping your patients up-to-date with their vaccines.
