SM’s vaccination initiatives
What: SM ordered over 500,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccines for its employees and for donation to the government.
Why is it important: The vaccination program is a joint effort of all the SM companies that include SM Investments, SM Prime Holdings, SM Retail and portfolio companies, BDO Unibank, Inc. and China Banking Corporation.
With the arrival of some of these vaccines last 25 June, SM immediately rolled out free vaccination for thousands of its employees to complement efforts where two-thirds of its employees have already been vaccinated. In addition, over 800,000 people have been vaccinated in 61 malls around the country that were used as vaccination hubs.
