PlanYourVaccine.com offers an interactive tool that allows you to locate vaccination sites anywhere in the US. Check if you are eligible for the vaccination based on your location, age, occupation and health risks; find the closest vaccination sites, including pharmacies and public health centers; track state-wide eligibility with vaccine distribution schedule for each state and more.
If you live in one state but have relatives who need to be cared for in other states, you probably don’t want to search multiple websites for information. PlanYourVaccine.com has it all in one place, available in English, Spanish and Mandarin, and you can sign up to receive notifications of vaccination plan changes in your state.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, a leading government infectious disease scientist, estimated that anywhere from 70% to 85% of the US population must be vaccinated to stop the coronavirus, which has killed more than 470,000 Americans. He recently argued that the spread of more contagious variants of the virus is increasing the need for injection by more people – and fast.
As of February 4, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that 32 million first doses were administered, and more than 9 million people had been fully vaccinated.
Vaccines will become more widely available in the coming months as countries that have vaccinated their most vulnerable people will be able to provide more doses and begin distributing them to the general population. NBC News hopes to make it easier for people to find out when and where photos can be taken with a comprehensive website with information for each state.
