This website does do a great job with looking at various scenarios for immunization. A nursing student would benefit from this exercise, but pre-nursing microbiology students this activity could be enhanced for better learning rather than assesment.

If found it frustrating if a student does not know the answer they must randomly click all the vaccinations until the next button appears. More feedback would be appreciated.
