Florida SHOTS allows healthcare providers to create a Certified (electronically signed) Certificate of Immunization (DH Form 680) and a PIN that will allow parents and guardians to access the certified 680. The DH 680 form is legal and valid in the state of Florida for admittance to schools and daycare facilities.
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.
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.
