Patients can now log onto our secure server directly and print electronically certified copies of D.H. Form 680 from their home computers if their health care provider is a participating physician. Electronically certified shot records are available for quick access with a registry-issued ID and pin number. Schools and day cares accept electronically certified 680s (authorized by administrative rule 64D-3.046 F.A.C.).
