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

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?"
