Florida SHOTS makes it easier than ever to provide DH 680 forms to your patients, parents, or caregivers.
Choosing Which Part of the D.H. 680 Form to Use
When creating a D.H. 680 form, you must first choose the correct part of the form to use for each patient.
As of June 2, 2017, Florida SHOTS revised the creation process of the D.H. 680 form within the system to more efficiently comply with Florida’s statutes. An overview of those changes is available here, and answers to frequently asked questions about those changes are available here.
- Part A (K-6th) Code 1—Select this option for children with the required immunizations, entering kindergarten through 6th grade.
- Part A (7-12th Grade) Code 8—Select this for children with the required immunizations, entering 7th through 12th grade. Florida SHOTS will verify that the child also meets the requirements for a Code 1 before generating a certified Code 8.
- Part B—Select this for children who are up-to-date, but still require one or more immunizations to attend school or daycare. This is a temporary medical exemption and needs an expiration date.
- Part C (Permanent Medical Exemption)—This is for children who are technically up-to-date, but because they have a permanent medical reason for not receiving one or more specific vaccines. Part C may be issued in conjunction with Part A or Part B. Both Part A and C, or B and C, would be selected if you have a patient with a permanent medical exemption. Rarely, children may have a permanent medical exemption to all vaccines, and in this case, only a Part C is issued.
