Google Maps shows flu shot providers in the U.S.

RELATED TOPICS

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 announced Tuesday.

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.
