Tech Giants have been doing their initiatives in combating the pandemic worries.
Google Search and Maps will soon have that pin in locating COVID-19 vaccination centers around the US. Google has been announcing several efforts lately in aiding vaccine distribution. The company’s CEO Sundar Pichai announced that there will be $150 million in ad grants and some Google products will soon display local information. This will then collate information from the US Government, retail pharmacies, and other legitimate sources.
Google Search and Maps: CEO’s Announcement
We’ll include details like whether an appointment or referral is required, if access is limited to specific groups, or if it has a drive-through. The COVID-19 pandemic has deeply affected every community all over the world. It’s also inspired coordination between public and private sectors, and across international borders, on a remarkable scale. We can’t slow down now. Getting vaccines to billions of people won’t be easy, but it’s one of the most important problems we’ll solve in our lifetimes. Google will continue to support in whatever way we can.
On the latest redesign, when a user searches about the vaccine, it will redirect to the “COVID-19 vaccine” panel that would give them the distribution, safety, and news. Once updated, users will show a map and highlight locations once they lookup “covid vaccine”.
According to sources, the specific data will be available over the “coming weeks” for Louisiana, Arizona, Mississippi, and Texas, with more states. Aside from Google, YouTube is planning to start a “Get The Facts” initiative to “get authoritative information out to the public about vaccines.”
With this, Google Search and Maps will be much useful to all.
