Amazon has offered to help President Biden distribute COVID-19 vaccines. The letter from Dave Clark, the company's vice president of global operations and customer service, containing this statement was sent to Biden on the day of his inauguration.
In the letter, the company stated that it wants to help not only vaccinate its employees in warehouses and stores Whole Foods Market but also in vaccinating the general public.
"In addition, we are ready to leverage our operations, information technology and communication capabilities and know-how to assist your administration's vaccination efforts," Clark said. "Our scale allows us to achieve a lot in the fight against Covid-19 and we are ready to help you in this endeavor."
The letter quickly sparked a storm of reactions on social media from both the left and the right, with some they point out Amazon's bad work practices and others wondering why the company seemed to be waiting for Biden to take up his duties to help government. Amazon and its CEO, Jeff Bezos, who is also the owner of The Washington Post, was a frequent target of the former President <br><br>Donald Trump - in a tweet Trump had called Bezo "Jeff Bozo".
Amazon says it also contacted the Trump administration about the COVID-19 vaccination. The company urged the Advisory Committee of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCgive priority to the vaccination of workers due to work They can not keep up with social distance and are as essential to the operation of the market as Amazon employees.
Biden takes over duties at a critical time. The vaccination attempt for COVID-19 has become somewhat confusing, with many states reporting difficulty receiving the vaccine and many others reporting experiencing problems with installment availability. The Trump administration has not achieved its goal - it said 20 million people will be vaccinated in USA by the end of 2020. Biden has pledged to deliver 100 million doses of the vaccine within the first 100 days of his administration.
