Valuable Tool: Vaccine Utilization Report

If you notice any discrepancies in your “Shots Recorded” and “Doses Administered” when placing your Vaccines for Children order, generate the Vaccine Utilization Report to help resolve the issue. The report will provide your organization’s vaccine usage details that have been entered, either manually or uploaded from your EHR, for a specified time period. As a best practice, you can generate this report on a weekly basis to ensure all the vaccines are being properly documented in Florida SHOTS and stay on top of managing your inventory.
