With vaccines being rolled out in many countries around the world, related queries are undoubtedly on the rise. To make it easier to access authoritative information, Google is expanding its knowledge panels in search results and is working to show nearby vaccination centers on Maps.

Updated search results will provide state and regional distribution information for the vaccine in more than 40 countries, in several languages. Additionally, Google is pumping in a total of $150 million to promote vaccine education through its Ad Grants Crisis Relief program and other initiatives.

Queries for “vaccines near me” have increased fivefold since the start of the year. With that in mind, Search and Maps will begin to show COVID-19 vaccination locations in the coming weeks for the US states of Arizona, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas.
