Quickly Find Nearby Flu Shots With Google Maps

Want to quickly and easily know where you can get a flu shot nearby?

Google has launched a new service that combines flu shot availability information with Google Maps, google.com/flushot. Everything that you love about Google Maps, plus flu shots! Google notes on their blog 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.”

Always make sure to call the location ahead of time to verify vaccine availability and your eligibility.
