There has been concern about the slow take-up of COVID-19 vaccinations. The Australian federal, state and territory governments and non-government clinics are providing website for eligible members of the public to book.
In this seminar I will explore the questions:
- How hard are these websites to use?
- How could this be made easier?
The content will be based on the blog post "Why Are the Federal & ACT COVID-19 Vaccination Booking Websites So Difficult to Use?" and and developed further here in this blog (contributions welcome). The draft presentation slides are available and a video presentation.
