Before completing your VFC annual enrollment, or “re-enrollment,” in Florida SHOTS, make sure your VFC personnel list is up to date. If there is a change in your site’s VFC enrollee or primary or secondary coordinator, you must fill out a new Provider Agreement Form and email it to the VFC program office at [email protected].
Once those changes have been made by the VFC staff, you can complete the process electronically within Florida SHOTS. For step-by-step instructions, view our recorded webinar here.
Remember, in order to finalize the annual enrollment process, the VFC enrollee must have a Florida SHOTS username and password so that he or she can e-sign the provider agreement.
Please have your Local Organization Administrator create a username and password as needed. If you don’t know who your Local Organization Administrator is, contact the Florida SHOTS help desk at 877-888-7468 (SHOT).
