The president of the United States Joe Biden is in talks with several Silicon Valley giants and Amazon to aid the rollout Covid vaccine.
Kevin Munoz the spokesperson told politico that officials are communicating with many companies, including Amazon, to aid with the distribution of medical supplies.
Munoz added that businesses with “logistics and technical expertise” could be called upon to help “Americans get vaccinated more efficiently, and more equitably.”
Companies like Google and Airbnb are likely to get involved. It is also worth knowing that this is not the first time Amazon has to render aid to the US, doing so under the last president.
On December 16th, 2020, Amazon’s Dave Clark wrote a letter to Dr. Jose R. Romero, Chairman of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.
In it, Clark said that Amazon’s 800,000 employees should “receive the COVID-19 vaccine at the earliest appropriate time.”
