'Apple Adds COVID Vaccine Sites to Maps to Help Users Find Appointments'

Jason Cipriani writes the following for ZDNet:

Apple … announced its latest effort to help with the COVID pandemic in the US. iPhone, iPad and Mac users can now ask Siri for help with finding a local COVID vaccine clinic. 

Alternatively, you can also open Apple Maps and search for the same information. The data comes from VaccineFinder, with results including a link to the website where you can book an appointment, along with the hours of the clinic. 

Apple says that the current data set has over 20,000 different vaccination locations throughout the US, with more locations being added soon.
