Google Launches Online H1N1, Seasonal Flu Vaccine Finder Tool

In collaboration with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Google has launched an online map tool (http://maps.google.com/maps/mpl?moduleurl=http://maps.google.com/mapfiles/mapplets/flushot/flushot.xml)designed to help users find the nearest location to get the seasonal or H1N1 flu vaccines.

After users enter a ZIP code or town, the tool displays color-coded syringes on a map. (Pink syringes for seasonal flu vaccinations; blue syringes for H1N1 flu vaccinations;  pink and blue syringes for availability of both vaccinations.) The flu shot finder currently includes data for about 20 states; developers say they plan to update the map with data for the entire U.S.

More information can be found in a Time online article from November 10, 2009 at: http://wellness.blogs.time.com/2009/11/10/where-can-you-get-a-flu-shot-ask-google/.
