If you are like me, eager to take the COVID vaccine, I have developed a quick and easy way to find out the closest appointment through data analysis. As you may have noticed, once you try to book an appointment through the CVS website, or other recommended websites like My Turn, you will quickly find out that your search is often limited to 50 miles, and depending on where you live, you won’t find any availability.
