Amazon Prepared To Assist President Biden With Vaccine
With a successful and smooth Inauguration Day in the books, Amazon is letting the world know that it’s here to help President Biden. Dave Clark, CEO of Amazon’s consumer business, sent a letter to the President. In fact, hours following Biden’s swearing in, Clark sent the letter.
“We are prepared to move quickly once vaccines are available,” Clark wrote in his letter to Biden. Clark’s goal is to encourage the creation of a valiant federal push to eliminate the virus.
Currently, The United States has reported endured 400,000 COVID-19 related deaths. In addition, Clark requested that the company’s employees and its partners employees at whole foods receive priority. He specifies those “who cannot work from home” should receive the vaccine “at the most appropriate time.”
Furthermore, the CEO highlighted Biden’s plan to tackle the pandemic head on. He emphasized how crucial it is to put the plan in place as soon as possible.
“As you begin your work leading the country out of the COVID-19 crisis, Amazon stands ready to assist you in reaching your goal of vaccinating 100 million Americans in the first 100 days of your administration,” Clark stated.
“We are prepared to leverage our operations, IT, & 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.”
Every week new reports reveal different ways the virus affects Americans and people around the world. Hopefully the Biden plan falls into place sooner rather than later.
