    From time to time, you may come across duplicate patient records in Florida SHOTS. Did you know that are a few things that you can do to prevent them from being created in the first place? Remember the 3 Cs for patient records: Complete. Correct. Current.

    Providing full names and up-to-date addresses and completing as many fields as possible allows Florida SHOTS to cross-reference the information and add updates to existing records.  Also remember to click on “Release Patient Record” when you’re done to prevent locked records and uploading errors.
