NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Amazon is pushing Tennessee Governor Bill Lee to get its workers vaccinated sooner rather than later.
In a letter to the governor obtained by WKRN, the company urged him to allow its 25,000 frontline workers to get vaccinations as soon as possible. They said their employees have been delivering essential items since the beginning of the pandemic.
Amazon’s letter went on to request the governor consider their employees in the first phases of the state’s vaccination plan.
Amazon has a number of facilities across Tennessee, including fullfillment and sorting centers in Nashville, Memphis and Chattanooga.
