Sundar Pichai, Google and Alphabet CEO, has had enough. Yesterday, he told his workforce and the world that “anyone coming to work on our campuses will need to be vaccinated.” Period.
Sure, most Google employees are bright enough to have already gotten a COVID-19 shot. Google doesn’t hire dummies. As Pichai wrote: “It’s encouraging to see very high vaccination rates for our Google community in areas where vaccines are widely available. This is a big reason why we felt comfortable opening some of our offices to employees who wanted to return early. And, I have to say, it’s been great to see Googlers brainstorming around whiteboards and enjoying meals in cafes again in the many offices that have already re-opened globally.”
