Users of Google Maps, Google Assistant and Google Search app will now be able to get more information about the availability of COVID-vaccines and appointments near them in multiple languages.
Google’s three services have been included in this
Google is adding new features to some of its services to help support India’s vaccination campaign. Starting this week, Google Maps, Google Assistant and Search will include detailed information on COVID-vaccination centers near users. The facility will be powered by implementing an API from India’s CoWIN portal to provide real-time information on vaccine availability and appointments.
Google has said that Vaccination Help is available in more than 13,000 locations across India. In such a situation, information will be given on the basis of appointment and slot. In this, you will be given information about each center where it will be known who is administering the first dose and who is the second. Apart from this, which vaccine is being used at the center and if its price is fixed, then Google will also tell you about it.

Note that users will still have to visit the CoWIN web portal to book an appointment. However, Google will provide a quick link on Maps and other services which will help users to access the portal quickly.
Hema Budaraju, Director of Google Search, said, “As people continue to seek pandemic-related information to manage their lives, we are committed to finding and sharing authoritative and timely information on our platforms.” For those who do not use Google Maps, the same information will also be available through the Google Search app and Google Assistant and will appear every time someone searches for terms related to COVID or vaccine.
Google has also brought all the information related to the vaccine in many regional languages. Users will be able to get immunization assistance in eight Indian languages apart from English. This includes Kannada, Hindi, Bengali, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Gujarati and Marathi.
