April 23 (Reuters) - Apple Inc (AAPL.O) said on Friday that it is starting a program to help employees get voluntary COVID-19 vaccinations at the iPhone maker's offices.

The company is working with drugstore chain Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc (WBA.O) as its vendor and will open a website for its workers to sign up for appointments, an Apple spokeswoman said.

Apple is one of the first large Silicon Valley companies to launch a program to help workers get vaccinated.

Deutsche Bank AG (DBKGn.DE) earlier this month became the first big bank in New York to say it would offer employees COVID-19 vaccinations at its offices.

Last month, Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) started onsite vaccinations for front-line employees, starting in Missouri, Nevada and Kansas.
