The CDC has launched an online tool that can help you quickly find vaccine providers near you.

The VaccineFinder app lets you enter an address or ZIP code and find providers within up to 50 miles. It also lets you see whether vaccines are in stock and check appointment availability.

The VaccineFinder currently includes data for roughly 29,000 providers – only about a quarter of the national total. The CDC plans to expand the data pool after the initial rollout.

Check it out for yourself at vaccinefinder.org.
