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.
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.
