Crowdsourced dashboard helps Californians find available vaccines

Finding information about available vaccines in California has been a struggle, but thanks to a crowdsourced website, VaccinateCA, the process should be a little easier.

VaccinateCA all started when tech worker Patrick McKenzie posted on Twitter with the idea for a civtech project with just one goal: Find which healthcare providers have inventory.

Now, the community-driven organization has over 300 volunteers working toward the goal to help get Californians vaccinated.

The volunteers lend their time to help Californians learn accurate, up-to-date, verified information about the coronavirus vaccine, so they they can learn when they will be eligible and how to take their place in line.

The team calls medical professionals at hundreds of potential vaccination sites daily, asking them if they have the vaccine and if so to whom they will administer it to and how to get an appointment.

Thanks to KQED for sharing the story about VaccinateCA.
