    Need a flu shot? There's a map for that.

    An online tool aims to make finding locations to get flu shots more convenient for Chicago residents.

    The site -- ChicagoFluShots.org -- pinpoints citywide flu shot clinics and their hours of operation.

    Officials hope the mapping tool will encourage residents to get flu shots in their community.

    The collaboration emerged from conversations between the health department and the social group, OpenGovChicago, during an event last year at which volunteer developers collaborate on civic technology projects.
