The axis of symmetry always passes through the vertex of the parabola . The x -coordinate of the vertex is the equation of the axis of symmetry of the parabola.

Let the points be   \((x_1,y_1)\;\;and\;\;(x_2,y_2) \)

 

The locus of all points equidistant from them will be the axis of symmetry.

 

\((x-x_1)^2+(y-y_1)^2=(x-x_2)^2+(y-y_2)^2\)

 

expand and simplfy that and you will have your axis of Symmetry.
