According to reports from engadget, Google now offers users a means of finding information about the COVID-19 vaccines using Google Search and Maps. This advancement allows users to contact a local Albertsons Companies pharmacy directly from Google Search and Maps.
To do this, hit the message button on search and maps, then you can ask any local outlet for information about vaccine eligibility, availability and appointments.
With the aid of Google’s Business Messages, pharmacies are able to respond to queries and frequently asked questions with chatbots.

Omer Gajial, Albertsons senior vice president of pharmacy and health in a statement said, “With Google’s Business Messages, we can quickly and accurately inform people of where, when and how they can get the vaccine.” He further said, “For our patients, this means getting them information quickly. For Albertsons Companies, it means freeing up our pharmacies to focus on what’s most important — administering the vaccine and taking care of our patients.”
This is a good move on the path of Google and Albertsons Companies. Harnessing the Business messaging tool to help people access accurate information about vaccines is a positive move.
