  • Proactivity prevents duplicates.

    There are several ways that Florida SHOTS users can prevent duplicate patient records from happening. Always use patients’ full, legal names instead of nicknames, and be sure to enter the most recent addresses and phone numbers into Florida SHOTS (or your EHR) so that patient records are up-to-date.

    If you come across duplicate records, please call our help desk at 877- 888-SHOT (7468), and our staff will be happy to help you merge them.
