In a letter to new President Joe Biden, Amazon offered to help distribute the Covid-19 vaccine in the United States.
The letter, written by Dave Clark, the firm's chief executive, said the e-commerce giant was "ready to help you in this endeavor."
The epidemic has been criticized for managing the epidemic, with some staff claiming that conditions in its warehouses were not safe.
But it is also calling for a vaccine to prioritize its staff.
The agency has signed an agreement with an unnamed healthcare provider to deliver the vaccine on site to nearby warehouses in the United States. It requested that 800,000 workers worldwide be the first to receive this dose because they are unable to work from home.
President Biden has promised to give 100 million Covid-19 vaccines to U.S. citizens within the first 100 days of the administration.
