Ordering VFC Flu Vaccines

Vaccines for Children (VFC) participants can now order flu vaccines in Florida SHOTS. Please keep in mind that you will need to contact the VFC Program if you did not pre-book or would like to order more doses than the quantity listed on the ‘Doses Available’ column.

Shots Recorded Report Guide

Vaccines for Children (VFC) participants can access the Shots Recorded Report that provides a list of vaccinations recorded corresponding to the VFC PIN for specified date range.  This report used on an ongoing basis can assist in ensuring that VFC vaccines are accounted for in Florida SHOTS and avoid inventory discrepancies.  Our guide will take you step by step on how to generate and can access HERE.

VFC Vaccine Ordering Tip: Double-check Your Doses!

Did you know that you can increase or decrease the number of vaccine doses on your regularly scheduled VFC vaccine order request? Make sure to review the “Projected Doses” on your “Doses Requested and Approved” page. This number is automatically calculated based on the number of doses you administered and how many you have left on hand, but there may be times when you need more than is projected—like back-to-school rush or other events. You can change the quantity in the “Doses Requested” field and the VFC office will review and determine if it’s approved.
