Data Collection and Reporting

This exploratory study investigated the web accessibility of COVID-19 vaccine registration websites in the US and their concordance with the WCAG 2.0 and 2.1 guidelines. AChecker, WAVE, and SortSite web accessibility evaluation tools were used to conduct automated analyses of these websites. The results showed suboptimal compliance with WCAG 2.0 and 2.1 guidelines. These shortcomings in compliance may pose difficulties to users with disabilities as they access information on the websites.
