On Friday, March 12, Massachusetts will drop the current version of its “Vax Finder,” which spirits vaccine seekers to third-party sites. People reported long-term website crashes and wait-times of more than 10,000 minutes to learn whether they would be able to schedule a vaccination.
Instead of having people wait online to check for an appointment, the new Massachusetts vaccine finder will have vaccine-seekers register with the site and they will be notified later when they can book a shot, Politico reported.
Gov. Charlie Baker said precautions were taken to ensure this version of the state vaccine finder will not crash.
