It's absolutely crazy trying to get a COVID-19 vaccine right now. You find an appointment and then, poof, it's gone in 2 seconds. There's one website that I found to be the easiest way to find a COVID vaccine in Minnesota so I wanted to share it with you. It helped my husband and I get appointments and it's super easy to use.

I'm going to guess that if you're really on the hunt for a vaccine, you've got a bunch of different tabs open on your computer of different pharmacies and stores that are offering the vaccine. You click back and forth between all of them and you may be going a little crazy. I did that at first too but then I learned about vaccinespotter.org.

Important note, this site isn't just for Minnesota, if you have family in other states looking for a vaccine this same site can be used!

Vaccinespotter.org is very easy to use. When you go to the site you select your state.

I would recommend not using any of the filters just to make absolutely sure you're not limiting your selection, especially if you're willing to travel for the vaccine.

Once you select the state, scroll down a little and you'll see a map with three different symbols:

A green circle means there are appointments available at that location.
A red diamond means there are no appointments at this time.
A grey square means the connection between the site and the pharmacy has been interrupted. That meansvaccinespotter.org isn't able to update the appointments accurately. I've only ever seen this as a problem for Sam's Club pharmacies.

If you see a green circle near you, click the circle.

VaccineSpotter.org

A little window will pop up with the location and the pharmacy. Next, click 'View Appointment Details'.

VaccineSpotter.org

Once you do that, on the right-hand side, it will show you more specific details about this location. Finally, on the right-hand side, click 'Visit Website' and it will take you to where you can set up an appointment.

It's simple and only one tab you need open on your computer instead of 5. Also, this website updates every few minutes so you won't be behind everyone else.
