Google to provide all the details about vaccine

New Delhi, 1/9: In a major development, search engine giant Google on Wednesday said users will be able to get more information about vaccine availability and appointments for over 13,000 locations in the country across its three products – Search, Maps and Assistant – starting this week.

The information is powered by real-time data from the Co-WIN APIs, and includes details like availability of appointment slots at each centre, vaccines and doses offered (Dose 1 or Dose 2), pricing (paid or free), and link to Co-WIN website for booking, a statement said.

The information will automatically show up when users search for vaccine centres near them, or in any specific area – across Google Search, Maps and Google Assistant, it added.

In addition to English, users can also search in eight Indian languages including Hindi, Bengali, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Gujarati, and Marathi.
