As part of that offer, Clark highlighted that Amazon has more than 800,000 US-based employees — most of whom work in essential roles at Amazon fulfillment centers, AWS data centers, and Whole Foods Market stores — and these workers “should receive the Covid-19 vaccine at the earliest appropriate time.” He added that Amazon has an agreement in place with a licensed third-party occupational health care provider to administer vaccines at its facilities.
In Clark’s letter, he suggested the company can help the administration more broadly, although the details are unclear.
He wrote Amazon is “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.”
Amazon did not immediately respond to CNN Business’ request for further information.
