Giving back to the community is nothing new for former Detroit Lions star Herman Moore, but now he working to help in this particular time of need.
As heard through Crain’s Nick Manes, a great tech and finance reporter in Metro Detroit btw, Moore is partnering with web development company three legged stool to create MyShot. The web-based platform aims to streamline the fair distribution of COVID-19 vaccines by matching government vaccine supply with the communities that need it.
“Our platform will make it easier for state and local governments to allocate supply to those who need it most. MyShot addresses a number of problems, including the fair and equitable distribution of vaccines,” Moore said in a Team 84 LLC release.
State and local governments can see demand and auto-allocate supply based on that demand with real-time deployment analytics. Vaccination providers will then get their supply based on that demand and their ability to distribute it. Users can schedule appointments and receive a vaccination card electronically.
“Fair and equitable distribution of COVID-19 vaccines is what drove us to create this platform. We’re looking forward to seeing it streamline the process,” Moore said in a LinkedIn post.
Meanwhile, the home of the Lions became the home of a vaccine clinic for Michigan educators:
