Google recently launched a flu shot locator, which uses Google Maps to show searchers nearby locations offering seasonal and/or H1N1 flu vaccine.

Google users can find this information on a standalone page as well as in Google search results when searching for terms like [flu], [flu shot], [h1n1 shot] and [flu vaccine]. The flu onebox also includes tips on staying healthy from Flu.gov.
