Google Maps is introducing a new feature that is very useful if you can get vaccinated. It is now possible to search for centers closest to you directly within the app. This feature was already available in the US and now deployed in France.

Other data is presented in tabs when searched, for example: the category of population eligible for the vaccine, known side effects, Covid statistics or news about the vaccine. Note that all data displayed by Google comes from the French government and can also be found at data.gouv.
