(CNN) -- Most of the U.S. can now choose which COVID-19 vaccine they want.

According to an analysis by Vaccine-Finder, nearly 80 percent of people live within 5 miles of all three vaccines.

Vaccine-Finder powers the government's website where people can search for a COVID-19 vaccine by zip code. Searches show easy access for people who live in big cities, even in small towns residents have a choice.

Freeport, Kansas, which has a population of four, has access to all three vaccines within an hour's drive.

Despite the access, demand for vaccines have dropped across the U.S.. Several States are no longer ordering their full allocation of doses.

The White House says vaccines that get sent back to them are redirected to other states still ordering their full allotment.
