COVID-19 Vaccine Finder
The state of Massachusetts lacked a clear way for citizens to find available vaccine locations and appointments.
Working closely with MA and Project Beacon, we built a website in the state's design system that made finding vaccine locations and available appointments easier.
An easy-to-use tool that makes finding an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine easier for the citizens of MA.
Answering the call.
The process for scheduling a COVID-19 vaccine has been challenging across the United States. With ever-changing eligibility information, incredibly high demand, and a limited supply of information and resources, the vaccine rollout process has come with a growing list of difficulties. Project Beacon approached us with a new COVID-19 challenge: quickly create a tool that would source state-wide COVID-19 vaccine locations and availability in one, easy-to-navigate site.
Leveraging existing data.
We set to work within our given constraints, building scrapers to pull data from many different vaccine location sources: retail pharmacies, state-supported mass-vaccination sites, and more, all while building within the state design system. We prioritized two main features: vaccine availability and proximity to the user’s current location. Ultimately, this app provides a single place for users to see which vaccine sites have recent availability and are most convenient to them, all designed in line with Massachusetts’s vast library of digital properties.
