COVID-19 Vaccine Tracking
Hope everyone is staying safe! I have been tapped on the shoulder to come up with a process of how to track the vaccine using the Lawson inventory system. Is anyone else tracking this in the system? If so, how have you set this up, how does this get translated into how many doses of 1st and 2nd dose left, days left to expired....etc. I have built this out in our test system based on how I think it should be tracked but would love to hear others input. Thank you in advance!
