SM Supermalls teams up with the Girl Scouts of the Philippines (GSP) to boost the Department of Health’s “Resbakuna Kids” nationwide vaccination campaign.
SM Supermalls’ ongoing vaccination efforts also welcome over 700,000 members of the GSP to get inoculated against COVID-19.
“We remain devoted to supporting the ‘Resbakuna Kids’ campaign of the Department of Health (DOH),” said SM Supermalls Senior Vice President for Marketing Joaquin San Agustin. “What’s more important is being able to administer the vaccinations particularly to the GSP who have not been vaccinated yet.”
San Agustin also urged those who are still hesitant to get jabbed to safeguard the public’s health and safety.
“We encourage everyone to get vaccinated, and for those who were vaccinated to get their boosters,” San Agustin said.
GSP National President Nina Lim-Yuson also echoed the need for children to get vaccinated so they can fulfill their duty of serving their communities.
“We know the GSP made their promise to serve God and our country and to help people at all times. You cannot help others if you are sick. We want everybody to be healthy and well,” Yuson said.
This initiative led by SM Supermalls is encouraging members of the GSP who have not been vaccinated yet, especially children aged five to 11, 12 to 17 and senior citizens to get jabbed at SM mall vaccination sites near them.
Prior to the vaccination day, GSP members must register in their respective local councils. Parents and guardians must also secure copies of any of the following documents: birth certificate, health records, school registration or ID, or baptismal certificate.
The collaboration aims to speed up the vaccination rollout in the Philippines in order to achieve herd immunity in the country as soon as possible.
As the single biggest entity to vaccinate Filipinos in the country, SM Supermalls has already administered over 9.4 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines nationwide in its 78 mall vaccination sites.
The mall chain remains dedicated in its commitment to ensuring a safe malling experience for the public through its staunch support of the government’s nationwide vaccination campaign.
