Answering top vaccine questions through interactive design
Share this story

For Toronto’s at-risk populations, accessing accurate and easy-to-understand vaccine information can be challenging.

OCAD University’s Health Design Studio partnered with local physicians and organizations, including Inner City Health Associates and 19 to Zero, to design and launch the Button Project to mitigate vaccine hesitancy and increase vaccine confidence among residents visiting or working in shelters. The project features one of two button designs worn by physicians with a scannable QR code leading to a webpage with clear and simple answers to address top COVID-19 vaccine questions including safety, mask usage and risks during pregnancy.

With information on vaccine efficacy and safety readily at hand, physicians can more easily navigate conversations with their peers and patients.
