About HealthMap Vaccine Finder

HealthMap Vaccine Finder is a free, online service where users can search for locations offering flu vaccines. We work with partners such as clinics, pharmacies, and health departments to provide accurate and up-to-date information about receiving the flu vaccine. Our goal is to make flu vaccination available to everyone by simplifying the process of choosing and finding a vaccine provider.

In 2012, Google passed the baton to HealthMap when they retired Google's Flu Vaccine Finder. Google has worked closely with HealthMap as they've created the new HealthMap Vaccine Finder. If you have previously provided data to Google Flu Vaccine Finder, you will need to register and upload your location data to HealthMap. Register »

Why do I need to get these shots?
There are 3 main reasons to get your shots.

  1. Vaccines help protect you against diseases that can be serious and sometimes deadly.
  2. The shots you got as a child can wear off over time. And as you get older, you may be at risk for other illnesses, like shingles.
  3. Vaccines don’t just protect you – they also protect the people around you. Some people in your family or community may not be able to get certain vaccines because of their age or health condition.

Do I need any other shots to help me stay healthy?
