    During this webinar we will be discussing Florida SHOTS functions for EVERY patient encounter. You are probably very familiar with using the system for well-visits and back-to-school physicals, but we want to stress the importance of utilizing the registry at every visit to check vaccination status to never miss an opportunity to vaccinate. We will review how to check the patient’s immunization status, record administered/historical vaccines and generate the Immunization History Report for your patients.
