Google's new search feature makes it easier than ever to get COVID - 19 vaccine information
Back in December last year, Google began releasing a new feature on Search, allowing users to view information for COVID - 19 vaccines. The search giant has now introduced new features to help US mobile users protect themselves and their loved ones from COVID.
The new features allow users to find the nearest test and vaccination locations. You can get started with these new features by opening the Google app on the best Android phones and typing “COVID vaccines near me.” Google Search will then display a list of pharmacies and medical facilities around you where get vaccinated.
If you are looking for a specific vaccine, you can also check by vaccine type. And if you want to vaccinate your children, you can use Google Search to find the nearest vaccine location for children.
Google Search lets you search for free COVID test sites. Even if you are just looking for a “COVID test near me,” the search results will show whether the site offers a free trial.
Google had added similar features to Search, Maps, and Subsidiary in India in September. They are also working on a new end-to-end vaccine feature with helper capability for the nation's consumers. This feature is expected to launch in early 2022.
New COVID cases in the U.S. have skyrocketed over the past three weeks, with Omicron now accounting for over 73% of cases. Scientists believe the Omicron revolution in the country could arrive in January and then begin to decline in March.
