Google Employees Must Be Vaccinated

G
oogle's 140,000-plus employees were advised that they needed to be vaccinated against COVID-19 before returning to work in the company's offices, in one of the most significant announcements of its type.

In an email acquired by The New York Times and The Associated Press, Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Alphabet, Google's parent company. Said, "Getting vaccinated is one of the most critical ways to keep ourselves and our communities healthy in the months ahead."

The corporation also pushed back its scheduled return to work date from September to mid-October, citing mounting concerns over the COVID-19 delta variant.

Pichai stated, “We realize that many Googlers are witnessing surges in their communities as a result of the Delta variant and are anxious about returning to work.” “This extension will give us time to go back into work while also giving those who need it flexibility.”

It's unclear how Google will handle employees who refuse to be vaccinated. 

But, Pichai wrote in his email that “encouraging to see very high vaccination rates” among Google employees in areas where the vaccine is widely available.

77 percent of persons over the age of 12 in Santa Clara County, where Google's headquarters are situated, are completely vaccinated, which is 20 percent more than the national average.

While a number of companies have begun to announce immunization policies for their employees, Google may now be the most prominent. 

The corporation has over 70 offices in 50 countries and is one of the most well-known names in the technology industry.

Vaccine requirements have been criticized by several conservative MPs as an intrusion on personal liberties. 

The debate has been a frequent feature on Fox News, with the network's greatest stars casting doubt on the vaccine despite overwhelming evidence that it is safe and effective.

Vaccination rates in the United States have dropped dramatically. 

In mid-April, the United States issued an average of 3.4 million COVID-19 shots every day. 

But that figure has dropped by 80% in recent weeks, to under 590,000 per day, despite the vaccine being widely available.

Meanwhile, there has been an increase in new incidents of the disease, with the majority of outbreaks occurring in states with low vaccination rates.
