Apple has announced an update to its Apple Maps service where it will now be able to show users COVID-19 vaccination locations. Currently this feature is only available in the US so if you live in another country, you’ll be out of luck as you’ll have to find out that information yourself. Apple states that this feature will also work with Siri, where you can ask the digital assistant for locations and it will bring it up.
According to Apple, “The Apple Maps placecard for each vaccine site will include the operating hours, address, phone numbers, and a link to the provider’s website, where Maps users can learn more about available vaccines and book appointments. The initial rollout includes more than 20,000 locations, with Apple adding more sites in the coming weeks.”
This vaccination location feature is kind of a follow up to last year’s update where Apple Maps started to list locations where people could get themselves tested.
