The revamping of CEMEX gyms into vaccination sites was made possible by the partnership among the local government units (LGUs) of Antipolo City and the City of Naga, Cebu, with CEMEX Philippines and CEMEX Philippines Foundation, Inc.

In Naga City, Cebu, more than 12,000 Nagahanons have been vaccinated in the APO Gym since it opened as a vaccination site. Community members are not only vaccinated but also educated on what to expect and what to do after vaccination. The Naga LGU inoculates an average of 700 people per day during its first month of operations.
