At mySidewalk, we’ve spent the last year supporting our partners as they respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve been alongside them as they navigated outbreaks, economic damage, and Public Health policy response. A consistent theme we’ve heard is that transparency is key, and timely release of credible information is the cornerstone of public trust.
As our communities rolled up their sleeves to do their part to protect their neighbors, our solution developers at mySidewalk leveraged the power of our publishing platform to create an easy report template for sharing vaccine data. This report communicates fact-based talking points about vaccine efficacy and safety, serving as a central information hub to answer the most common questions.

The mySidewalk Vaccine Tracker template integrates customer-supplied data with the mySidewalk approach to strategic communications. Published reports are updated automatically as the customer uploads data to the collection system, keeping the public apprised of the latest trends in distribution.
Our goal at mySidewalk has always been to bring data to the people. Ensuring that public data is accessible, easy-to-understand, and timely is a responsibility we take seriously. This was true before the pandemic, and it is true now. We look forward to a day when our country can breathe easier knowing that this pandemic is behind us. Until that day, we will continue to do our part.
