What can a few dozen Microsoft alumni do over a weekend to help end the pandemic? They can and did create a website to track where residents of Washington State can schedule their vaccine appointments,

From their FAQ:

We are a rapidly-growing volunteer group with over 70 members from WA State and around the world. We were frustrated at how long it took to try each vaccination location only to see no appointments available. We developed WA COVID Vaccine Finder ( to collect appointment availability from the WA Department of Health’s (DOH) official list of vaccination location. The DOH is aware of our site, and we hope to fill the gap until their more comprehensive webpage is available.

More details in this article on GeekWire and on the COVIDWA website.

And while this is an all-volunteer effort, operating a website does cost money. If you would like to donate, use the details on this page.
