Gosh. Everybody seems to be getting a flu shot, getting the flu, or freaking out about something flu-related. So, who are we not to throw fat on fire? We came across Google's new flu features, and we couldn't be more delighted/scared. See, Google will help you get a flu shot and help you find out more where the flu is attacking.
First, here is a map of available flu shots in the Bay Area. It lets you know where you can get seasonal flu shots, H1N1 flu shots, or both. (San Francisco is temporarily out of stock, by the way.)
Also, Google has a helpful new feature, Google Trends Flu. Finding that certain search terms ("flu," "swine flu," "H1N1," vaccination," etc.) indicate strong flu activity, Google Flu Trends "uses aggregated Google search data to estimate flu activity."
