    Each organization enrolled with Florida SHOTS has at least one Local Organization Administrator (LOA) to manage their account. With the start of a new year, it's a great time for each LOA to ensure their Florida SHOTS account is up-to-date! During this webinar, we will review the feature of unlocking a patient record, managing your Personnel List (adding/ending user access) and setting Vaccines for Children (VFC) permissions.
