Are you having difficulty locating a vaccine appointment? Do you wish there was a website that contained information for ALL your local pharmacies instead of having 20+ individual tabs open for each one? Well look no further! www.vaccinespotter.org is the one-stop shop for all your vaccine appointment needs! "A tool to help you track down COVID-19 vaccine appointment openings at your state's pharmacies. Updated every minute. Rather than searching around on each pharmacy's website, we'll automatically scan the pharmacy websites and show you any available appointments we can find on one page."

And today we interviewed the guy behind all of it: Nick is a regular guy with a big heart and has put his software engineering skills to good use. When he heard his coworkers' frustrations about finding appointments for their elderly loved ones, he knew he could help. A month later, vaccinespotter.org is up and running and helping hundreds of people access their dose of the Fauci-Ouchie. This feel-good story is a lovely reminder that there are good people out there...which has inspired us to focus this month on people who have pivoted and helped others amidst the pandemic. Stay tuned!
