    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.
