April 23 (Reuters) - Apple Inc said on Friday that it is starting a program to help employees get voluntary COVID-19 vaccinations at the iPhone maker’s offices.
The company is working with drugstore chain Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc as its vendor and will open a website for its workers to sign up for appointments, an Apple spokeswoman said.
Apple is one of the first large Silicon Valley companies to launch a program to help workers get vaccinated.
Deutsche Bank AG earlier this month became the first big bank in New York to say it would offer employees COVID-19 vaccinations at its offices.
Last month, Amazon.com Inc started onsite vaccinations for front-line employees, starting in Missouri, Nevada and Kansas. (Reporting by Chavi Mehta in Bengaluru and Stephen Nellis in San Francisco; Editing by Ramakrishnan M.)
