MORE MALLS have been turned into pediatric vaccination sites, in support of the government’s coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccine rollout.

Robinsons Malls has opened more pediatric vaccination sites nationwide.    

“Participating Robinsons Malls were transformed into giant playgrounds where they get to banter with mascots, play games, and bring home exciting treats,” the mall operator said.

For instance, Robinsons Place Antipolo held a carnival-themed vaccination party with free ice cream and photo opportunities for superheroes.

Meanwhile, Araneta Group allowed the Quezon City government to use its New Frontier Theater for the inoculation drive for nearly 3,000 children on Feb. 20.

While waiting for their vaccines, children were entertained by mascots and given balloon twisters.

“With Araneta City being a center of leisure and entertainment, we want to incorporate this to the experience of our young vaccinees. This way, they will be less anxious and stressed before and after they receive their COVID jabs,” Marjorie Go, AVP for marketing of Araneta City, said in a statement.
