COVID-19 Vaccines for 2023-2024

Ordering is now open for the 2023-2024 formula of the COVID-19 vaccine. Enrolled Vaccines for Children (VFC) and Vaccines for Adults (VFA) providers can find the available vaccines on their regular VFC and VFA order request page in Florida SHOTS. COVID-19 vaccines are no longer ordered separately from other vaccines funded by VFC or VFA.

Bivalent mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines Are No Longer Authorized

The bivalent Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines are no longer authorized for use in the United States. To minimize the risk of vaccine administration errors, providers should: Remove all bivalent mRNA COVID-19 vaccines from storage units immediately, even if they are not expired. Once all inventory is fully accounted for, adjust bivalent mRNA COVID-19 vaccines from the available vaccine inventory in Florida SHOTS as wastage. Follow the instructions on how to complete adjustments. The instructions are also available in Spanish. Dispose of all bivalent mRNA COVID-19 vaccine vials in accordance with current regulations.
