Google announced on Wednesday that it will utilize its search, Maps, and Assistant functions to provide people with more detailed information about the availability of Covid vaccinations and appointments.

The new data, which will be available for over 13,000 locations across the country starting this week, will be powered by real-time data from the Cowin APIs. The business said in a statement that the information includes the availability of appointment slots at each center, vaccines and dosages given (dose 1 or dose 2), pricing expectations (paid or free), and a link to the Cowin website for booking.

In March 2021, Google, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, began showing Covid-19 immunization centers.

“As people seek information on the pandemic to help them manage their life around it, we are committed to finding and distributing accurate and timely information across all platforms,” said Hema Budaraju, Director of Google Search, in a statement.

When consumers search for immunization centers near them or in any specific location using Google Search, Maps, or Google Assistant, the information will appear automatically.

In addition to English, users can search in Hindi, Bengali, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Gujarati, and Marathi, which are all Indian languages.

Google said it will continue to work closely with the Cowin team to bring this functionality to all vaccination clinics in India.

The company has also been collaborating with the Union Health Ministry’s Rapid Risk Response team, which is tracking disinformation across regions and languages using social media listening techniques and combating it with science-based messages on vaccines and pandemic response in general.

Shortly after the first round of vaccinations began, the business launched information panels in Google Search that display Covid vaccine-related inquiries.

This data comes from the Ministry of Health, and it includes answers to frequently asked questions, real-time vaccination statistics, and connections to the Ministry of Health’s website for more local resources.
