Alternative asset manager Blackstone has asked its US workforce to get Covid-19 vaccine booster shots to operate from office, reported Bloomberg.
The company has directed its employees to get the booster jabs ‘as soon as practically possible’, a Blackstone spokeswoman told the news agency.
Blackstone employees, who are working in the office, are also required to get tested on-site for Covid-19 weekly three times.
The bank, which was initially planning to open its offices next week, recently postponed its return to office plan to the end of this month owing to a recent surge in Covid-19 cases in the US.
Besides Blackstone, a raft of other Wall Street banks and companies have now made Covid-19 vaccination and booster shots mandatory for their workforce to return to office.
