Global News published this video item, entitled “Canadian technology makes getting COVID-19 vaccine appointments easier” – below is their description.
Science made breakthroughs possible late last year and continues to do so in the development of COVID-19 vaccines – but trying to book an appointment to get a shot could be almost as complicated as it was to make them.
Vaccine websites in multiple provinces have not always been easy to navigate in booking a timeslot and it has some Canadians stressing in trying to do so, especially as rollouts ramp up.
But a pair of tech developers in Ontario took matters into their own hands and created a system allowing people to input their postal codes and be given a list of the closest clinics offering vaccines. It’s only in Ontario right now, but they said they plan to expand when it’s possible to the country.
