DIY vaccine availability finder sites hit the spot

A Sydney geospatial engineer has set up a do it yourself search engine for people looking to find COVID-19 vaccinations in their local area, drawing on disparate sources of data to try to make sense of the multitude of state and private booking engines that are confusing consumers looking to book online.

Kenneth Tsang’s COVID-19NearMe site is one of number of other ad hoc sites filling in the gap between official booking sites like Australia’s HealthDirect eligibility checker and New Zealand’s BookMyVaccine, joining vaxx.nz, gpvaccinesearch.com and Covid Queue in providing real time data on when and where vaccinations are available.

Hi Jackie
This will take you directly there: https://covid19nearme.com.au/state/nsw/vaccination
At the top of the screen there's two tabs saying 'Exposure sites' and 'Vaccine clinics'. Click on either one to swap between maps.
