Concerned about the flu? Want a way to find out quickly (and easily!) the nearest place to get a flu shot?
Worry no more! Google just started a new service that uses Google Maps to locate flu shot availability in your neighborhood: google.com/flushot.
But be careful: Google tells us that, “this project is just beginning and we have not yet received information about flu shot clinics for many locations. In addition, many locations that are shown are currently out of stock. We launched this service now in order to help disseminate information about locations where vaccines are available, and also to make more vaccine providers aware of the project so that they can contribute.”
So always make sure to double-check if the vaccine is actually available and if you are eligible before you go.
Stay healthy, admins!
