The American company Kroger, which owns one of the largest supermarket chains in the United States, has decided to stimulate the vaccination of its employees with money. They will be paid $ 100 for the coronavirus vaccine. The lump-sum payment will be received by employees who have provided the personnel department with documents confirming that they have been vaccinated. Employees who are medically or religiously unable to vaccinate will be offered a health education course to receive money. The company notes that it has already allocated an additional $ 50 million for bonuses to employees. “We strongly recommend that all customers and employees get vaccinated to contain the spread of COVID-19. We will do our best to ensure that they have access to the drug,”Kroger Chief Medical Officer Mark Wankins told CNN. According to the National Retail Federation of the United States, Kroger is the third largest retailer in the country after Walmart and Amazon. The company's stores are located in 35 US states. CNN notes that as of February 6, 2021, 36,819,212 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in the United States. On average, about 1.3 million vaccinations are made per day in the country.
