Google, Facebook and a question: can companies force the vaccine?


Amid the stagnation of the vaccine in the United States, giants like Google, Facebook e Netflix announced their own measures. The three giants in the technology sector said they will require vaccination of their employees so they can return to offices and face-to-face activities. Concern for super-transmissible variants such as Delta is also at the heart of the decision.

Google was the first to announce the measure on Wednesday and was followed by Facebook a few hours later. Netflix says the vaccine will be mandatory on movie sets and company productions.

In a way, the United States is facing a problem opposite to the Brazilian one. If the doses are lacking here, there are those interested in supporting them. An analysis published in the journal Nature Medicine reports that low- and middle-income countries want to receive the coronavirus vaccine more than richer regions, where the amount of immunizers is abundant.
