As of January 24, Apple is asking employees for proof of vaccination with booster doses against COVID
Apple will ask retail and corporate employees to submit evidence of taking the booster dose against COVID-19.
Starting January 24, unvaccinated employees or those who have not submitted vaccination proofs will need COVID-19-negative tests to enter Apple workplaces.
"Due to the diminishing effectiveness of the first doses of COVID-19 vaccines and the emergence of highly transmissible variants such as Omicron, a booster injection is now a necessary part of protecting against serious diseases." stated in the email sent to company employees.
Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Reuters.
Many companies in the US have tightened their rules for COVID-19, making vaccination mandatory and delaying return plans to the office as the Omicron variant increases infections nationwide.
This week, the Meta platforms ordered the COVID-19 booster dose for all employees returning to offices.
While a report from 'The Information' said that Amazon.com Inc. has offered employees of its US warehouse $ 40 (€ 35) to receive a boost dose.
