COVID-19: Google makes vaccination clinics available

Google CEO Sundar Pichai said Monday that the company would set up its facilities to become COVID-19 vaccination clinics as tech giants aim to speed up US distribution efforts.

Google said it was working with One Medical's healthcare provider on clinics, which it will open "as needed" in buildings, parking lots and open spaces.

The company works with local officials and public health authorities in the cities Los Angeles, New York and Washington to set up clinics as soon as several doses of the vaccine become available.

Google COVID-19

Google is on the growing list of tech giants offering their largely unused properties to help distribute vaccines, as most of their employees continue to working from home. Last week the Amazon offered its facilities, requesting vaccines for the company's key employees, the data centers and Whole Foods stores. THE Microsoft It also said it would open its campus in Redmond, Washington for vaccinations.

Biden has pledged to deliver 100 million doses of the vaccine within the first 100 days of his administration. COVID-19 killed more than 418.000 Americans during duration of pandemic.

Google has occasionally fought against anti-vax content on its platforms. The YouTube, which is owned by Google, banned the misinformation on COVID-19 vaccinations, removing content that claims the vaccine will implant a microchip in the body of people or will cause infertility.
