On Wednesday, January 20, 2021, Amazon wrote a letter to the new US president. Joe Biden offering help to target Covid-19 vaccines to 100 million Americans.

They are poised to leverage their operations, communication services and information technology, Dave Clark, Amazon’s chief executive, says in the letter. Amazon says they are all prepared to help the new President Biden.

Clark also congratulated the new President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

“Our scale allows us to make a significant impact immediately in the fight against COVID-19, and we are ready to help you in this effort” Clark adds in the letter.

The company is interested in offering vaccines through its own facilities. Although Clark does not mention this anywhere in the letter, he writes that “Amazon has an agreement in place” with some health care providers to administer vaccinations on site.

They will move quickly once the vaccine is available, says Clark.
