Google Pledges $150 Million USD to COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution

The company’s facilities will also be used as vaccination sites.

Google has pledged $150 million USD in advertising grants and funding to promote COVID-19 vaccination efforts in the U.S. CEO Sundar Pichai announced that the tech giant will set aside facilities including parking lots and offices as vaccination sites, as well as supply health organizations and public health agencies with funds to boost vaccine education.

Google will also provide state and city-specific information regarding the vaccine — such as appointment and referral information — through its search engine. Vaccination sites will be indicated on Google Maps. “The COVID-19 pandemic has deeply affected every community all over the world,” Pichai said in a statement. “It’s also inspired coordination between public and private sectors, and across international borders, on a remarkable scale. We can’t slow down now. Getting vaccines to billions of people won’t be easy, but it’s one of the most important problems we’ll solve in our lifetimes. Google will continue to support in whatever way we can.”

Head to the official Google blog to read Pichai’s full announcement.
