Google launches vaccine-finding feature in bid to fight Covid-19
Google on Thursday went international with tools designed to help people find Covid-19 vaccination locations, as the US internet titan ramps up efforts to fight the pandemic.
Google also plans to launch a cloud-based “virtual agent” to schedule vaccination appointments or get information in 28 languages using chat, text messages, or phone calls.
Google said it will provide 250,000 vaccine doses to countries in need along with adding the ability to find sites for the jab in Canada, Chile, France, India, Singapore and the US.
Along with this, Google is funding “pop-up” sites for the jab in the US, and committing an additional $250 million in ad credit to spreading vaccine information.
