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.

Florida Flu Pre-book 2022-2023 Opened

The 2022-2023 flu pre-book opened in FL SHOTS on July 1, 2022. Only the enrollee, primary VFC coordinator or back-up VFC coordinator can enter the pre-book information into FL SHOTS. We recommend you review your administration data from the current flu season to determine the number of doses to pre-book for 2022-2023. 

Why should a provider pre-book flu doses?

  • Pre-booking flu doses ensures that providers will begin receiving flu vaccine doses as soon as it is available to the VFC Program. 

Can a provider pick the brand of vaccine they prefer?

  • No, providers will only be able to pre-book the number of single dose syringes (SDS), multi-dose vials (MDV) or single dose sprayers they need. Brand will be determined by the VFC program and availability.

Which manufacturers will be available to providers?

  • GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Sanofi Pasteur, AstraZeneca, and Seqirus flu vaccines will be provided for 2022-2023. The vaccine will ship as it becomes available to the VFC Program.
