Locate clinics offering flu shots with the click of a mouse

Google recently launched a new online tool called Flu Shot Finder to assist you in searching for pharmacies and clinics offering both the seasonal flu and H1N1 virus vaccines.

Developed in collaboration with the U.S. Department for Health and Human Services and the American Lung Association, Flu Shot Finder includes data compiled from clinics in 20 states and pharmacy chains across the country.

Google acknowledges the online database may be incomplete and suggests calling to confirm vaccine supplies prior to visiting clinics and pharmacies:

It's important to note 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.
