Google lists vaccination centers in Maps and Search


                                        In order to be able to provide users with reliable information, Google would now like to list vaccination centers in Maps and Search.  <a href=""><img class="alignnone size-medium" src="" alt="©" width="400" height="20" /></a><p>&nbsp;The&nbsp; company also invests heavily in partnerships with health organizations.

 The  Google search engine is the number one port of call for many when they are looking for information. In the course of the corona crisis, Google quickly became a source of trustworthy news. For example, shortly before the first lockdown, the company partnered with the WHO to provide people with reliable information. In addition, Google was working on a display of the Corona hotspots in Google Maps. According to a blog post by the company, something similar is now planned for vaccination centers.

Reliable and local information

According to Google, the search query “vaccines near me” has quintupled since the beginning of the year. In order to provide users with locally relevant information, Google is now starting to prominently display vaccination centers and all other places where you can get vaccinated in Google Search and maps. Above all, care should be taken to provide additional information, for example whether an appointment is necessary or whether there is a drive-through option. Google will initially start with this integration in some US states.

For users in other countries, Google has already expanded the information panels in the search and also shows regional information about the vaccination against Covid-19 there. A get-the-facts initiative will also provide information on Google and YouTube.
