Amazon is offering vaccine help to the Biden White House

Amazon hired an occupational health care provider to administer coronavirus vaccines at warehouses.

Amazon offered to assist the Biden administration with its coronavirus vaccine distribution effort and urged that Amazon essential workers receive the vaccine as soon as possible in a letter from consumer CEO Dave Clark to President Biden on Wednesday.


The company has hired an occupational health care provider to administer coronavirus vaccines at Amazon warehouses and other sites when it becomes available, according to the letter. "We are committed to assisting your administration's vaccination efforts as we work together to protect our employees and continue to provide essential services during the pandemic," Clark wrote.

In October, the company reported that at least 19,000 workers had contracted the virus since the beginning of the pandemic, following criticism from employees over the company's health and safety protocols.
