    Whether you are new to placing Vaccines for Children (VFC) or COVID-19 vaccine orders, or you just need a refresher, we've got you covered! During this webinar we will demonstrate how to place vaccine orders. Additionally, we'll review the Shots Recorded Report to assist with inventory reconciliation.

  • Vaccines for Children (VFC) Flu Vaccines

    Influenza vaccines are being shipped to providers who completed the seasonal pre-book in Florida SHOTS. If you did not pre-book, you may contact the VFC Program at [email protected] to request doses be placed in pre-book for you. Please include your VFC PIN. Flu vaccine orders will not be available for ordering in Florida SHOTS, but the order status can be tracked on your Order Requests page.

    Once all providers have received half of their pre-book flu vaccines, the remaining vaccine doses should be requested through Florida SHOTS by using the Order Requests page. At that time, those providers who did not pre-book may request flu vaccines. Instructions for submitting your order can be found HERE. Also available in Spanish.


    As of October 8, 2022, new Florida SHOTS passwords must have the following parameters:

    • Must be 10 to 30 characters long
    • Must contain at least 1 lower-case, 1 upper-case, 1 number and 1 special character
    • Cannot contain common password words such as “password”, “admin”, “12345”, etc
    • Cannot contain more than 4 of the same repeating characters
    • Cannot contain your system user ID
    • Cannot be any of the previous 3 password used or any password used in the last 90 days

    Users will need to use new requirements when the system prompts them to update their password.
