  • Florida Flu Pre-book 2022-2023 Opened

    The 2022-2023 flu pre-book opened in FL SHOTS on July 1, 2022. Only the enrollee, primary VFC coordinator or back-up VFC coordinator can enter the pre-book information into FL SHOTS. We recommend you review your administration data from the current flu season to determine the number of doses to pre-book for 2022-2023. 

    Why should a provider pre-book flu doses?

    • Pre-booking flu doses ensures that providers will begin receiving flu vaccine doses as soon as it is available to the VFC Program. 

    Can a provider pick the brand of vaccine they prefer?

    • No, providers will only be able to pre-book the number of single dose syringes (SDS), multi-dose vials (MDV) or single dose sprayers they need. Brand will be determined by the VFC program and availability.

    Which manufacturers will be available to providers?

    • GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Sanofi Pasteur, AstraZeneca, and Seqirus flu vaccines will be provided for 2022-2023. The vaccine will ship as it becomes available to the VFC Program.

    Is Flu-Mist available for the 2022-2023 flu season?

    Yes, Flu-Mist is available for pre-book.

  • Florida SHOTS Will No Longer Verify Opted-Out Patients

    All patients who have completed the official form and opted-out of Florida SHOTS will be removed from the system entirely. The ability to determine a patient’s participation status will no longer be available in Florida SHOTS.

    To ensure these patient records and immunization histories are not reentered, providers should be confirming their Florida SHOTS participation status during each vaccination encounter. It is highly recommended providers maintain physical documentation of immunizations for all opted-out patients as they may be asked to show proof of immunizations by physicians, schools, daycare centers, etc., and Florida SHOTS will no longer provide this information.

  • Electronically Certifying DH 680 Form

    Florida SHOTS allows healthcare providers to create a Certified (electronically signed) Certificate of Immunization (DH Form 680) and a PIN that will allow parents and guardians to access the certified 680. The DH 680 form is legal and valid in the state of Florida for admittance to schools and daycare facilities.
