CLARK FREEPORT -- The local government unit (LGU) of Cabanatuan City, in cooperation with SM Supermalls, has established a Covid-19 vaccination center, inside the SM City Cabanatuan.
Cabanatuan City Mayor Myca Vergara, together with the management of SM City Cabanatuan, recently signed an agreement to conduct a series of anti-Covid-19 vaccination at the mall area located at Level 2, Garden Park starting April 19, 2021.
SM Supermalls provided the venue for free with all the equipment like chairs, tables and barricades with the support of the mall manpower to maintain the security, crowd management, cleanliness and proper sanitation of the area, said Sheen Crisologo, PR manager of SM City Cabanatuan.
Joanne Bondoc Assistant Mall Manager said SM is working with the community since day one of this pandemic.
This initiative shows SM's commitment to be part of our continuous battle against Covid-19, she added.
“Since last year, SM has been actively supporting the community with SM Foundation Inc. through the donation drives wherein SM distributed temperature scanners, personal protective equipment, alcohols, food and distribution of Kalinga Packs in different Barangays. The used RESBAKUNA venue is part the continuous efforts that we would like to extend in helping our local government to properly conduct the vaccination drive for Cabanatuenos,” said Bondoc.
Vergara visited the first day of the Resbakuna at SM City Cabanatuan with 100 senior citizens as beneficiaries of the free Sinovac vaccine.
“The vaccination against the dreaded disease is a big step towards ending the pandemic,” Vergara said.
SM Megacenter Cabanatuan will also be a venue for Resbakuna in the following days.
SM is the only private establishment having this vaccination sites in this city.
