Reuters and Amazon cooperating on vaccine information

Reuters and Amazon announced that the news agency will provide covid vaccine information for Amazon´s digital assistant Alexa. Reuters data will power answers to Alexa customer questions on the availability of and eligibility for vaccines in more than 85 countries and all US. The agency will also make continuous updates on country-specific vaccine distribution, approvals and rollout strategies.

Customers will be able to ask Alexa questions such as, “Alexa, who can receive the COVID-19 vaccine near me?” or “Alexa, what age groups qualify for the COVID-19 vaccine in California?”

“Accurate information on COVID-19 vaccine availability and rollout progress is critical as we enter this next phase of the pandemic. Working with Amazon to provide access to Reuters accurate and reliable data in the public interest is crucial to our mission of powering informed decisions through our trusted intelligence”, said Michael Friedenberg, President, Reuters.

Reuters global vaccination dataset will also power a global COVID-19 vaccination tracker built by Reuters Graphics. The tracker makes detailed information on public access to the vaccine and progress of the rollout available to our readers worldwide.
