California launches Chatbot to combat misinformation about COVID-19 – NBC Los Angeles

The California Department of Public Health has partnered with WhatsApp to launch a Spanish- and English-speaking chatbot that will help provide accurate information on COVD-19 and vaccines.

Users will receive up-to-date information on virus updates, information on how to book vaccine appointments, and how to obtain vaccine records.

The service is completely free and can be accessed by scanning a QR code or text “hola” to 833-422-1090.

Individuals without Internet access can call the COVID-19 hotline at 1-833-422-4255 (833-4CA-4ALL) and have resources in multiple languages.
