To encourage its employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19, Apple is offering them paid time off to go to the appointments,  Bloomberg reported Monday, citing unnamed sources. In addition, the company is also offering paid sick time for employees who experience side effects after getting the vaccine. Apple itself isn't providing shots for workers as it doesn't have access to the vaccines, according to "people with knowledge of the matter," Bloomberg reported.
