Google Flu Shot Finder Shows Nearest Clinics

With flu season well underway, Google teamed up with with the U.S. Department for Health and Human Services (HHS), flu.gov collaborators and the American Lung Association and came up with the Flu Shot Finder, a handy tool that shows you where your closest vaccine can be found and even tells you if the provider has any stock left.

Though the project is just beginning and Google has not yet received information about flu shot clinics for many locations, a lot of people are going to find this tool useful. Especially when you consider the fact that it also maps H1N1 shots, which people are still full on freaking out about, by the way.

Right now, Google has data for vaccine locations from 20 states and counting and is continuing to add information from chain pharmacies and other providers in all 50 states. Already available are results from Walgreens, CVS and PDX participants, such as Kmart, Duane Reade, WinnDixie and Giant Eagle.

    Fun fact: The "H1N1" flu is a weaker version of the common flu. There is also only enough to help 12% of the population get this "immunization" and its also the same effect as it had with the 1970's flu shot: It cripples 90% of the users. Let's hope they give it out to the socialist pigs in our government and all of the entitlement-wallowing crapsack beaurocrats as well.

    The shot is more deadly than the actual flu.

    No thanks!

    Be very careful about this jab. If you know anyone considering taking it who is also pregnant then strongly advise them not to. The jabs contain mercury. It is also pretty untested and some new compounds have been used in it whose long term effects aren't very well understood right now. The jabs have been rushed through approval and haven't gone through nearly the amount of testing that is usually required for a vaccine.

    Agree. health departments around the world are over exaggerating the seriousness of it. It maybe deadly to some people but most recover from it.

    There's too much propaganda from... Well, I'd say both sides, but there's more than 2. I just refuse to give a shit.

    My aunt panicked, got the shot, and she's doing absolutely fine soo... *shrug* Unless it has some super delayed effect or something.

    mlg779h1n1 is just a very big scam, and some americans are dumb enough to believe itActually no, it is a very real disease that can be fatal to certain subgroups of individuals. I am an elementary school teacher in a poverty stricken area and the h1n1 virus was responsible for taking the life of a kindergarten student at our school. Luckily the CDC (center for disease control) and the Cook County Health Department sent over enough vaccinations yesterday to innoculate our students and staff. I am glad I got the h1n1 shot, you should do more research before saying ignorant statements like "Some American's are dumb enough to believe it."

  • Let's try this: Go to the CDC website and look up some facts about this H1N1.
    Here's some facts that don't add up to me. The last H1N1 outbreak was around 1998 (Outbreaks happen ever 11 years, like clockwork). How could patient 0 (an 8 year old boy) be patient 0 if they weren't even alive when the last outbreak occured.
    Yeah, the people that took the first round of shots as someone stated above (1970's or so) DID die. Think they linked it to the vaccination? Heck no, there's money involved, but how to explain all those deaths occuring so close together?
    My biggest beef: You are 438% more likely to die from complications of getting the vaccination, than from contracting H1N1. Think it's natural for you to get a weakened/dead virus and preservative soup injected into your body? You decide.
