FRIDAY, Feb. 26, 2021 (HealthDay News) — A centralized online portal to help Americans find nearby COVID-19 vaccination sites is being backed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

VaccineFinder is a website run by Boston Children’s Hospital that until now has been used to help distribute established vaccines for diseases such as the flu, CBS News reported.

The website was expanded on Wednesday to include more than 20,000 COVID-19 vaccination sites in several states and there are plans for it to go nationwide in the coming weeks.

However, appointments cannot be made on the site. It directs users to other sites to make an appointment, CBS News reported.
