Residents can now get their COVID-19 vaccine shot in SM City Mindpro.
On May 14, the mall management in partnership with the City Government rolled out the vaccination program at the mall’s cinema hallway.
SM City Mindpro Public Relations Officer Arnel Manahan said the mall will provide a convenient and large space for vaccination as long as vaccines are available. For now, the vaccination drive prioritizes front liners, senior citizens, and people with comorbidities.
“We are targeting a hundred vaccinees a day,” Manahan said.
SM Supermalls President Steven Tan welcomes the use of SM malls nationwide as vaccination venues.
“SM malls all over the country can provide convenient, safe and accessible venues for the community to get vaccinated. We remain committed in ensuring the health and safety of the public,” Tan said.
“Thank you SM! Not only are you bringing in opportunity to shop safe, but you are also giving opportunities to keep our families safe,” said Mayor Beng Climaco.
The mayor has been a strong advocate for COVID-19 vaccination as “it is an important part of COVID-19 pandemic response”.
Residents are advised to register for vaccination via the city government’s master listing website https://zambocovax.com. Residents may also register via their barangay health centers. (EDT/DIS/PIA9-Zamboanga City)
