Jollibee Foods Corporation and McDonald’s Philippines are preparing to have select stores set up as vaccination sites for the National Vaccination Day (NVD) to help accelerate the inoculation of as many Filipinos as possible and achieve population protection for the country.
The NVD, also dubbed Bayanihan Bakunahan, is a 3-day vaccination drive that aims to jab 5 million individuals per day on November 29, 30, and December 1. This program is led by the national government in collaboration with various stakeholders—the private sector, health workers, civil society organizations, churches, and schools.
To help increase the vaccination coverage in time for the Christmas holidays, Jollibee and McDonald’s have offered strategically located stores nationwide as vaccination sites in partnership with their respective local government units.
During the course of the pandemic, the Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation has collaborated with McDonald’s Kindness Kitchen and Jollibee Group Foundation in its COVID-19 response efforts, such as distributing ready-to-eat meals to medical frontliners.
Other Taskforce T3 partners participating in the NVD as vaccination sites are SM Supermalls, Robinsons Malls, Ayala Malls, Megaworld, as well as selected schools under the Coordinating Council of Private Educational Associations of the Philippines and Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities. Grab and Angkas are also offering their support to the said event.
