SM Supermalls begins its multi-mall vaccination drive as it inks partnership with various LGUs nationwide to be the venue for their COVID-19 vaccination program.
“As part of our continuing efforts in preventing the further spread of COVID-19, SM malls all over the country can provide convenient, safe and accessible venues for the community to get vaccinated. Through our long-standing relationship with the LGUs, we remain committed in ensuring the health and safety of the public,” said SM Supermalls president Steven Tan.
Last March 29, SM together with the Municipality of Rosario in Cavite, rolled out the program entitled, “Resbakunado Tayo, Mga Taga-Rosario!” where SM City Rosario’s spacious cinema hallway was repurposed to hold the vaccination activity. The program prioritizes the inoculation of health workers, front liners, senior citizens and indigents as identified by the DSWD. There are about 12,000 recipients that are expected to receive their initial vaccines.

SM also has joined hands with the Olongapo City Government for its two-day vaccination pro-gram held last March 30 to 31 at the SMX, SM City Olongapo Central. Front liners were the first recipients and more will get vaccinated in the coming days once the next batch of vaccines ar-rive in the city.

Meanwhile, SM in partnership with the Municipality of Pulilan launched the vaccination activity last March 31 at SM Center Pulilan. Around 200 individuals registered for vaccinations consisting of medical workers, front liners and some senior citizens. Around 700 more will get vaccinated with the resumption of the activity this week.
