Google and Google Maps will start showing COVID-19 vaccination sites in the US. The company has not stopped making changes to its search engine, and app ecosystem since the pandemic caused by COVID-19 began. Since the alarms have been raised, which were subsequently deployed worldwide, Google’s search engine has been progressively displaying more and more information on the matter, so that everything would be more accessible to the public.
Google and Google Maps to start showing COVID-19 vaccination sites in the US
In December, for example, Google began to inform which vaccine was available in each area, so that users would know exactly which variant they were going to get when it was their turn. Now Google is starting to let us know where we can find vaccination points.
Google itself has been in charge of announcing the next modification that will be introduced both in its search engine, accessible from any browser with an Internet connection, as well as in Google Maps. The changes will occur this week and starting from the United States, probably to deploy worldwide.
Both the Google search engine and Google Maps will begin to show the areas where we will be able to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Let us remember that the United States operates differently from many other countries, with vaccines distributed and applied differently. We do not know if, when this function is expanded to other countries, we will be pointed directly to clinics or health centers. We will have to check once this happens.
In the meantime, Google will notify the vaccination points in the states of Arizona, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas, and soon the rest of the states in the country will follow. Google also announces that other countries will follow the United States, so it is logical to think that this will be a worldwide functionality activated in the coming weeks.
