Florida SHOTS Will No Longer Verify Opted-Out Patients

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.
