On May 1, 2021, the COVID-19 vaccine became available to all people aged 18-44. The COVID-19 vaccine was previously available to all people aged over 45. Amazon, Google and many other tech companies have created new programs that help individuals locate COVID vaccine centers close to them. WhatsApp is just one of the many tech companies that have been added.
WhatsApp’s Head of Communications, Will Cathcart announced that on May 1, 2021, they would be collaborating with healthcare partners in order to offer helplines through chatbots via the messaging app. WhatsApp users can now search the nearest vaccination center by using the MyGov Corona Helpdesk bot. In the first half of 2017, the MyGov Corona Helpdesk chatbot was made available. The chatbot now shows you the location of COVID-19 vaccination centers.
It’s hard to imagine Indian friends going through such a difficult time with COVID. It is a great thing to see everyone supporting each other. We’re working with health partners to support helplines on WA like this one from @mygovindia https://t.co/pqE0VGHQbK https://t.co/uhmyEN5U7f
