Apple Maps Displays COVID-19 Vaccination Locations in United States

Apple today updated its Maps app to display nearby COVID-19 vaccine providers across the United States to make it easier for people to find an appropriate location to receive the vaccination when eligible.

Vaccine location listings include operating hours, address, phone number, and a link to the provider's website where Apple Maps users can get more information about available vaccines and book an appointment.

Apple has also introduced a Siri integration for vaccines. You can ask ‌Siri‌ "Where can I get a COVID vaccination?" to be directed to a nearby location.

VaccineFinder, a free online service from the Boston's Children Hospital is providing the data for the new ‌Apple Maps‌ feature, and the initial rollout includes more than 20,000 locations. Apple plans to add more sites in the coming weeks. Healthcare providers, labs, and other businesses can also submit information on COVID-19 testing or vaccination locations on Apple's Business Register Page, and once validated, the info may be displayed on ‌Apple Maps‌.

‌Apple Maps‌ also includes COVID-19 testing locations in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and the United States, along with COVID-19 modules for businesses to share special hours and other information.

100% propoganda and misinformation
Please, do tell. When did you become an epidemiologist and where did you study?

Having actually worked on a covid-19 task force in the tri-state area and having watched as loved ones said goodbye to their family behind glass windows and nurses and doctors risk their lives for you and countless others, your rhetoric is dangerous and should be removed as you are putting others’ lives at risk with misinformation.

I have personally lost friends who were healthy, young, and not at all considered high risk - including Nick Cordero.

If you don’t care about others at least show some modicum of respect for those who have lost loved ones to a virus you claim is “Propaganda“. I would say more but I’ll be respectful.

I assume you realize that the vaccine “reprograms” your DNA? Astra has been linked to deaths due to blood clots, Pfizer creates an immune response to asythin-1, which is used in the formation of placenta. All have a lower immunity rating than catching COVID which presently has a 99.7% survival rate below 70yrs of age (per Dec CDC tables)

if you want to participate in a medical experiment, I freely and unconditionally offer you my doses.
Honest to god, this level of misinformation and lack of basic education is astonishing.

Why don't you care about the people you'd infect?
Because he doesn't care about anybody else except for himself, that's why.

Yes, my chance of surviving this is more than 99% for my age group... I’m going to be perfectly fine.

Fortunately evolution gave me an immune system, I don’t need this vaccine rubbish.
Interestingly enough, the theories of evolution and natural selection go hand-in-hand. Good luck.
