Use Google Flu-shot to find local H1N1 vaccination


Microsoft and Google, two titans in technology, are separately trying to help combat the worst flu season in decades. First came an interactive Web site from Microsoft to help diagnose the swine flu.

Now comes a flu shot finder from Google to help find shots for the regular flu and swine flu. If only Microsoft and Google combined their efforts in battling H1N1, we'd have this problem solved.

The swine flu is causing the worst flu season in the United States since 1997, when current measurements started. So far the virus has killed an estimated 3,900 people, according to a Reuters story.
