Users can search for COVID-19 vaccine locations in Apple Maps thanks to a service developed by Boston Children's Hospital.

Ask Siri where to get a COVID-19 vaccine

Apple updated the Maps app on Tuesday with the ability to search for COVID-19 vaccine locations. Search in the Apple Maps app or via Siri by asking "Where can I get a COVID vaccination?"

The placecard shown for each vaccine site will include the operating hours, address, phone numbers, and a link to the provider's website. The initial rollout includes more than 20,000 locations.

Apple Maps will continue to add valid locations in the coming weeks

Apple has previously updated Apple Maps with the ability to search for COVID-19 testing locations. Location data of Apple Maps users, once removed from the Apple ID, is also now being used to alert people of how crowded a location may be.

    The problem, in my state at least, is there are plenty of places to go but they rarely, if ever, have supply.

    My in-laws asked for our help in getting them appointments as they couldn’t figure out how to use the state website. Using the website wasn’t particularly difficult but finding availability was. We switched to trying to get an appointment through CVS. Every time we checked, the CVS website showed “Fully Booked” at every location. I finally had a little luck getting my FIL an appointment but by the time I had finished the process there were none available for my MIL. So, we’re halfway done and back to “Fully Booked” all the time.
