PinasLakas vaccination campaign is an intensified vaccination and booster drive which aims to fully-vaccinate 90% of the A2 or Senior Citizen population, as well as increase booster dose coverage to 50% of the total target population on the first 100 days of the Marcos administration.

It is also a way of the government to make vaccines easily accessible to the public and to increase the number of Filipinos who received Covid-19 booster. Starting today, PinasLakas vaccination at SM Cauayan Transport Terminal will be available from Mondays-Fridays. Vaccines are also available during weekends at SM City Cauayan Cinema Lobby.

SM City Cauayan has been a partner of the Cauayan City Health Office and LGU Cauayan on the vaccination drive since 2021.

“We will continue our support and commitment to speed up the vaccination and booster drive as we open once again the vax site in our mall including the SM Transport Terminal to cater the operators, drivers and passengers”, said Ms.Sheila Marie Estabillo.

To date, almost 10.5M doses were administered across all the vaccination sites in SM malls nationwide, in partnership with the Department of Health and local government unit. (SMCA-PR)
