300,000. That's the number of people vaccinated in Klépierre shopping centers. Since the beginning of the health crisis, we have been hosting numerous vaccination centers throughout Europe.
It took only three weeks for this Vaccine Hub to come into being. Since opening on May 2, the 1,000 sq-m structure, which can accommodate 3,500 people per day and has already delivered 121,000 jabs of vaccine has become an example for the surrounding areas, particularly for its efficient setup. The facility features a decontamination passage to control the temperature at the entrance, 28 vaccination booths and a large waiting room for the 15 minutes following the vaccination. All this was made possible by a team of 80 people, including doctors, nurses and Red Cross volunteers.
The initiative owes its success to a long-standing partnership between the mall and the Red Cross, which greatly facilitated all the steps required to offer mall visitors and the local community an optimal vaccination center.
Far from being an isolated initiative, many of our shopping centers in Europe host vaccination centers: in Italy since March for Rossini Center (Pesaro - 90,000 jabs) and Le Gru (Turin - 2,700 jabs) and since June for Campania (Marcianise - 22,000 jabs). In France, Grand Littoral (Marseille) and Mondeville 2 (Caen) are also hosting vaccination centers. In Czech Republic, the Prime Minister opened a vaccination center in Nový Smíchov in July 2021.
All these actions perfectly illustrate our Act for Good® CSR strategy and once again demonstrate our commitment to local stakeholders and territories, and our desire to be useful to our communities.
