Project Description

Our assignment was to plan and deliver an interactive mobile-first website that helps address the misinformation surrounding COVID-19 vaccines, touching on attitudes ranging from fearful, hesitant, to blindly optimistic. A chat application format was chosen to progressively disclose information in an organic way. By allowing users to control the pace at which information is shown in a friendly application environment, the overwhelming process of learning about vaccines without science literacy is made less intimidating. Casual texting language is employed to maintain an immersive text chatting experience. With 6 weeks to build a functional proof of concept, we built a web-ready prototype using the Bot.UI Javascript framework, as well as a high-fidelity Figma prototype that better showcases the intended user interface design. We hope to lower the communication barriers in sourcing trusted public health information and to bolster vaccine confidence for the general public.
