Apple Inc. (AAPL.O) said Friday it is launching a program to help employees with voluntary vaccinations against COVID-19 in iPhone manufacturers ’offices.
The company is working as a retailer with the Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. (WBA.O) pharmacy chain and will open a website for its employees to sign up for meetings, an Apple spokeswoman said.
Apple is one of the first large companies in Silicon Valley to launch a program to help workers get vaccinated.
Earlier this month, Deutsche Bank AG (DBKGn.DE) became the first large bank in New York to say it would offer employees in its offices vaccinations against COVID-19.
Last month, Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN.O) began on-site vaccinations for first-line employees, starting in Missouri, Nevada and Kansas.
