Jollibee and McDonald’s may be the two biggest fast-food chains in the Philippines, but these days they have been more allies than rivals. The giants are joining forces again amid the pandemic, offering their outlets as vaccination sites to ramp up the government’s COVID-19 vaccination program.

Both McDonald’s and the ‘Bee volunteered to convert their chains as venues for eligible adults and minors receiving their first doses to help local government units meet the daily jab target of 1.5 million Filipinos.

According to Task Force T3, a public-private group that supports COVID-19 initiatives, the program would focus on Central Luzon, Calabarzon, as well as other key cities outside Metro Manila.

Task Force T3 said that the National Task Force Against COVID-19 already endorsed the initiative across local government units.

T3 added that LGUs will be responsible for the implementation of the vaccination program in these sites, which could begin rolling out this month.

The latest vaccination data showed that the Philippines’ average daily jab rate was at 774,185.

The fast-food companies first teamed up in Task Force T3’s “Ingat Angat, Tayong Lahat” private sector-led campaign that aimed to boost the Philippine economy amid COVID-19.
