With COVID-19 vaccinations becoming more widely available in Canada, Twitter has now added a new timeline prompt for all the relevant vaccine information in the country.
Starting this week, Canadians will see a prompt in their timeline that links to sources about vaccine safety, efficacy, and news from public health experts.
The prompt will show up in home timelines and direct to Moments on topics such as vaccine safety, vaccine eligibility. The prompt will also offer a direct link to the @GovCanHealth website.

Last month, Apple updated Apple Maps with COVID-19 vaccination locations from VaccineFinder, a free, online service that provides the latest vaccine availability for those eligible at providers and pharmacies. While its currently only available in the U.S., Apple plans to expand the feature in the coming weeks.
