Deutsche Bank  (DB) - Get Report will reportedly offer coronavirus vaccines to all staff and eligible dependents at its New York office starting next week.

The German bank expects to receive the two-shot Moderna  (MRNA) - Get Report vaccine from New York State authorities, and will administer doses to its full-time employees in the New York office, Reuters reported.

Deutsche has asked the Brentwood, Tenn., health-care provider Premise Health to administer the shots after an internal survey found a majority of employees would support the effort.

Deutsche Bank will become the first big bank in New York to offer COVID-19 vaccines at its offices, though many offer on-site testing for the virus, Reuters reported.

To be sure, getting the vaccines is not mandatory.
