Amazon is offering help to new US president Biden to assist Covid-19 vaccines
Amazon has a deal with healthcare providers to assist Covid-19 vaccines all over America.
On Wednesday 20th Jan 2021 Amazon wrote a letter to new US president Joe Biden offering help to direct Covid-19 vaccines to 100 million Americans.
They’re prepared to leverage their operation, communication services, and information technology, says Dave Clark, who is chief executive of Amazon in the letter. Amazon is saying that they’re all prepared to help the new president Biden.
Clark also congratulated new President Biden and vice president Kamala Harris.
“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”
The company is interested in offering vaccines through its own facilities. Though Clark doesn’t mention this anywhere in the letter,he writes that “Amazon has an agreement in place” with some health care providers to administer vaccinations on site. He also doesn’t mention anything that clears the fact that Amazon services have been considered. The company operates warehouses, Amazon-branded shops, and Whole Foods grocery stores. They’ll be quickly moving once the vaccine gets available, Clark says.
Amazon is capable of providing technology and communication resources to the new administrator. “We are prepared to leverage our operations, information technology, and communications capabilities and expertise to assist your administration’s vaccination efforts.” Clark stated, in the letter that he sent to Biden on Wednesday 20th January. This letter was first reported by Reuters.
Amazon is a leading company globally and has 800,000 workers or employees in the United States and most of them are essential workers who cannot work from home, says Clark in the letter. Amazon requests to prioritize its workers and give them the first doses of vaccines as they’re unable to work from home.
Amazon has offered to deliver vaccines all over America through its letter but it also requests to prioritize its 800,000 employees in vaccination.
The firm has signed an agreement with a healthcare provider to direct the vaccines at its site and warehouses in the United States.
