Computer programmer shares workaround to Alberta COVID-19 vaccine booking issues
UPDATE: As of 7 p.m. Wednesday, it appeared the website had been changed and the workaround was no longer effective.
Hundreds of people said they were able to book COVID-19 vaccination appointments for their loved ones Wednesday thanks to a workaround published online by a computer programmer.
It all started Wednesday morning when Kory Mathewson‘s family logged on to the Alberta Health Services website to book appointments for Grandma Mufty and Grandpa Bill.
The first appointment was booked after a few tries but getting the second was more difficult.
Like so many other Albertans, once logging onto the website and putting in the postal code, the website stopped working for Mathewson.
