According to a letter penned by Amazon Consumer’s CEO Dave Clark, the company’s 80,000-strong staff are ready to come to the administration’s aid in order to realize its plan of vaccinating 100 million people within the president’s first 100 days in office, as well as ensuring that its employees will get vaccinated as soon as possible.
“We have an agreement in place with a third-party occupational health care provider to administer vaccines on-site at our Amazon facilities,” the letter reads. “We are prepared to move quickly once vaccines are available. Additionally, we are prepared to leverage our operations, information technology, and communications capabilities and expertise to assist your administration’s vaccination efforts. Our scale allows us to make a meaningful impact immediately in the fight against COVID-19, and we stand ready to assist you in this effort.”
