In an effort to help people searching for nearby COVID-19 vaccine centers or sites. Amazon has rolled out a new feature for its Alexa voice assistant which can help you find nearby COVID-19 vaccine centers or sites. Yes, you can now use the Amazon Alexa voice assistant to find and connect with nearby vaccination sites and can also check for availability or schedule an appointment.

People can also say, “Alexa, call the first one,” to connect to a specific location directly and learn more about vaccine or appointment availability.
