Apple is launching a COVID-19 vaccination program for employees, reports Bloomberg.
The company is working with Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. to give workers the shots at Apple offices. The Cupertino, California-based technology giant is rolling out a website for staff to sign up for appointments. The company previously told staff that, as a private company, it didn’t have access to Covid-19 vaccines for staff members. However, vaccine availability in California has expanded considerably and all residents in the state are now eligible to receive shots.
Apple has encouraged employees to get vaccinated, offering sick leave for days missed due to taking the shot and recovering from symptoms. While the program may encourage more staff to return to work at Apple's offices, the company has not yet asked employees to return. Additionally, signing up for the shot through the program does require a return to in-person work.
