Just like it did with the SARS-CoV-2 virus (coronavirus), Google is making the information around the COVID-19 vaccine more accessible. The Mountain View, California-based giant announced that it is introducing a new search feature that will show a list of authorised vaccines in users’ locations.

Further, Google will show information panels about each individual vaccine. The feature is being launched in the UK first, since the country gave emergency authorisation to the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.
