Check COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment Availability With New Tool On State's Website

BOSTON (CBS) -- A new tool to make it easier to find a COVID vaccine appointment is being launched by the state on Friday. The COVID-19 Vaccine Finder gives people the opportunity to search through vaccination sites and see availability before booking.

The tool is on the site, located at the Step 2 prompt.

Users can search and filter locations to see sites near to a particular zip code, for example. Then, it shows whether there are appointments available on a per-day basis, and other important details such as site instructions, accessibility information, and a link to Google Maps for directions. The tool is available in a number of languages.

Appointment availability updates every five minutes for select sites. The availability at more vaccination site locations will be added as time goes on.

The COVID-19 Vaccine Finder is not a booking site, it just helps find appointments.
