BOSTON (WPRI) — The state of Massachusetts launched a new tool Friday to make it easier for people to find out where they can get the COVID-19 vaccine and whether appointments are available at certain sites.

The COVID-19 Vaccine Finder allows residents to search for their city or town and filter the results by site type: health care location, local board of health, mass vaccination site, or retail pharmacies.

While the page displays all of the state’s locations, it only includes the appointment availability for mass vaccination sites and some of the sites run by local health departments at this time.

The available appointments for additional locations will be added over time, according to state officials.

The tool also provides information on which vaccines are being offered (Pfizer or Moderna), disability access and site-specific instructions.

Eligible residents can schedule a vaccine appointment on the state’s website. Those without internet access can do so over the phone by calling 211.

Mass. Department of Health reported 1,480 new coronavirus cases Monday, and that an additional 32 people had died after contracting the virus.

The data shows 1,107 people are in the hospital with COVID-19, with 286 patients in the intensive care unit and 174 on ventilators.
