    American technology conglomerate Facebook has partnered with the Indian government to roll out a vaccine finder tool on its mobile app in India, which will help people identify places nearby to get vaccinated.

    According to Mashable, earlier this week, Facebook announced a $10 million (roughly Rs. 74 crores) grant for emergency response efforts for the COVID-19 situation in the country. The vaccine tracker tool will allow users to find the nearest vaccine centre locations and their hours of operation as shared by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW).

    The tracker tool will also aggregate and display walk-in options (for 45 years and above) along with a link to register on the CoWIN portal and schedule vaccination appointments.
