Keep Your Patients Up-to-Date with Reminder/Recall

Reminder/Recall is one of the many tools in Florida SHOTS that helps you boost immunization levels in your practice. Your office can create lists of patients who are due or overdue for immunizations and even create and print mailing labels. Keep track of your patients’ shots and never miss an opportunity to vaccinate! For step-by-step instructions on how to run a reminder/recall report in your office, check out our “Reminder/Recall Guide

Spring Cleaning Your Personnel List

With the changes to the DH680 form certification process, now is a great time to ensure that your Florida SHOTS account and personnel list are current and correct. In order to electronically certify and sign a 680 form, a current and clear medical license is required to be listed on the provider’s Personnel Maintenance page in Florida SHOTS. Only Local Organization Administrators (LOAs) have the authority to update the personnel list, add/end user access, set permissions, and manage their organization’s Florida SHOTS account. Check out our recorded webinar HERE for step-by-step instructions!

If you need to add or change a LOA on your account, you can contact the Florida SHOTS Help Desk at 877-888-7468 (SHOT) to make those adjustments.

Also, make sure to check the “Current Announcements” on the Florida SHOTS login page for the most up-to-date important announcements!

Changes to Florida SHOTS, DH680 Form Creation

Changes to “Add a Vaccination Record” for Private Providers

If you are a private provider whose organization, or any of its sites, participates in one of our ordering efforts (such as the Vaccines for Children Program), you will now see a field labeled “Funding Program” when adding a current vaccine. In this field, you will need to document whether the administered vaccine was ordered through Florida SHOTS, and if so, which ordering effort is being used. Please note that the “Funding Program” field should be left at the default of “-Select-“ for vaccines from your private stock. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION.
