SM Supermalls hits 5 million COVID-19 jabs, opens more vax sites for minors
According to medical experts, Covid-19 vaccines are crucial to acquire herd immunity in any population. Children will also benefit through vaccination and an expert from John Hopkins stated that “the vaccine helps prevent kids from getting COVID-19: Although COVID-19 in children is sometimes milder than in adults, some kids infected with the coronavirus can get severe lung infections, become very sick and require hospitalization.”
SM Supermalls are taking serious initiatives in helping our nation in controlling the spread of covid19 virus by making the vaccine more accessible to everyone and to the younger members of our population.
During the opening ceremony of Paranaque City LGU’s “Bida Rin ang Bata” vaccination center in SM City Sucat on November 3, a total of 588 youngsters were given their first dose of vaccines. To date, SM Supermalls has vaccinated over 6,000 pedriatric constituents in 15 pediatric mall vaccination sites.
