SM and Pasay LGU to build one of the biggest vaccination centers in the Philippines

SM, together with National University, and the local government of Pasay City have partnered for ‘Vacc to the Future’ program to build one of the biggest vaccination centers in the country which will accommodate around 2,000 individuals per day.

“We are very happy to partner with the Pasay local government unit for this project,” said SM Supermalls president Steven Tan. “With the vaccine center, this will greatly help in doubling efforts to hasten the vaccination of our community members, especially the medical frontliners, the elderly, and those who have co-morbidities.”

Pasay Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano said that the partnership with SM Supermalls is a win for the city as they work hard to accommodate as many people as they can for COVID-19 vaccinations with this milestone project.

SM and Pasay City government join hands for ‘Vacc to the Future’ vaccination program.

“We hope that our partnership with SM will encourage more people to sign up and get the vaccine so that we can slowly return to our normal lives. We all want to live safely and connect with our families and friends in person. We would like to thank SM Supermalls for making this possible,” said Calixto-Rubiano.

The facility is also fitted with an air-conditioning system and will soon feature a drive-through section for vaccination.

SM, in partnership with various LGUs, has rolled out multi-mall vaccination program with over 30 SM malls nationwide which were identified as partner vaccination sites. SM has ongoing vaccination activities in over 10 malls but will activate more and resume others once vaccines in some areas have arrived and become available.

Since the start of the pandemic, SM Supermalls has been at the forefront of helping Filipinos. Many SM malls have served as COVID-19 testing sites in partnership with the Philippine Red Cross.

The company has also donated beds, linens, and pillows to schools, such as Ateneo de Manila, the University of the Philippines, and other institutions who turned some of the classrooms and dormitories into COVID-19 facility wards.
