Jollibee stores serve as Vaccination sites
The Jollibee Group supports the country’s aggressive vaccine roll-out, lending its stores as vaccination sites in five key Metro Manila cities.
MANILA, Philippines. 22 February 2022 – The Jollibee Group has once more provided its stores as vaccination sites for local government units (LGUs) during the third National Vaccination Day held on February 10 and 11. In partnership with the Department of Health (DOH), seven Jollibee stores in Metro Manila administered a total of 1,701 primary doses and booster shots to eligible adult Filipinos.
Among the participating stores were Jollibee Commonwealth Mindanao and Jollibee Katipunan in Quezon City; Jollibee Sucat Road in Parañaque City; Jollibee Bonifacio Global City Triangle in Taguig City; Jollibee Valenzuela in Valenzuela City; and Jollibee Legarda and Jollibee North Harbour in the city of Manila.
Originally slated as a two-day mass vaccination drive, some Jollibee stores extended their participation until February 13 to allow for the inoculation of more people. These stores included Jollibee branches in Valenzuela, Commonwealth Mindanao, Katipunan, Legarda, and North Harbor branches.
“We have always believed in the important role of vaccination and boosters in keeping our people safe and helping reopen the economy as we continue our drive to move into an endemic phase. We are honored to help our country by providing several stores in Metro Manila as easily-accessible vaccination sites to support the goal of speeding up vaccinations and reaching more people in the country,” said Pepot Miñana, Chief Sustainability and Public Affairs Officer of Jollibee Group.
The nationwide vaccination drive, dubbed “Bayanihan, Bakunahan,” aimed to administer five million COVID-19 vaccines in its third wave. Prior to the February vaccination, the Jollibee Group also provided Jollibee branches to be utilized as vaccination sites during the first and second mass vaccinations that were held in late November and early December of last year.
A total of 1,701 primary doses and booster shots were administered by LGUs at several Jollibee stores that served as vaccination sites.
