Google has launched a feature in its Maps Web site that lets U.S. residents
find nearby locations for getting seasonal and H1N1 flu shots, the company
Google previously launched a
site where people can monitor current flu-infection levels in the U.S. and abroad.
In launching the flu-shot finder, Google warned that the service doesn’t yet have comprehensive data on all providers because it is still gathering that information.
In addition, Google Maps won’t tell people whether a particular provider has run out of vaccines, a big issue right now with the H1N1 shot, whose production isn’t keeping up with demand. Thus, people are advised to call the providers before heading to their location.
