Earlier this week Google Maps launched a flu shot finder at http://www.google.com/flushot. Google said it has "been working with HHS, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local health agencies to gather information on flu vaccine locations across the country, particularly for the H1N1 flu vaccine (both the nasal-spray vaccine and the shot)."

We gave it a try—you type in your zip code and it shows locations where there are H1N1 and seasonal flu vaccines. But if you want to go slightly outside of your radius, you'll need to type in another zip code. And Google adds, "Of course you should still call flu vaccine providers ahead of time to find out more about availability and eligibility for the two vaccines." Also: The map does not include this weekend's free swine flu vaccine clinics for people in priority groups across the five borough.
