Creating electronically certified DH680 forms can be a big timesaver for you and your patients. By electronically certifying within Florida SHOTS, you not only save a copy that is accessible to schools and daycares, but you can create a Parent PIN that allows a parent/guardian to print it from home.
August is National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM) and is held to highlight the importance of vaccination for people of all ages. Communities across the country use the month each year to raise awareness about the important role vaccines play in preventing serious, sometimes deadly, diseases across the lifespan.

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.
