Davao City transfers drive-thru vax near Croc Park

THE City Government of Davao has started operating its drive-thru vaccination exclusively for Covid-19 booster shots near the Davao Crocodile Park on January 11, 2022.

Dr. Michelle Schlosser, spokesperson of Davao City’s Covid-19 Taskforce, said the drive-thru vaccination will administer booster shots for everyone.

“Starting today, mag offer ta og booster doses sa A1, A2, A3, A4, and A5 sa Crocodile Park, whichever is available na mga brands didto, mahatag nato (Starting today, we are offering booster doses for A1, A2, A3, A4, and A5 at the Crocodile Park. We can only administer whatever brand is available there),” said Schlosser during an interview with Davao City Disaster Radio on Tuesday, January 11.

But Schlosser clarified that they will not be catering to minors aged 17 and below.

Vaccinees qualified for booster doses are those who have already been fully vaccinated after three months, or two months if administered with the J&J Janssen single-dose vaccine.

According to Schlosser, the available Covid-19 vaccine brands at the drive-thru are Sinovac-CoronaVac, Oxford-AstraZeneca, and Moderna vaccines. Schlosser said the Pfizer-BioNtech is reserved for pediatric vaccinees.

“If you are waiting for Pfizer, ang Pfizer man gud more for pediatric patients kay mao man to ang pinaka-safer for pediatric vaccinees (The Pfizer vaccine is more for pediatric patients because that’s what safer for the minors),” she said.

The drive-through vaccination will be open from Monday-Friday with a cut-off around 2 p.m., as per the spokesperson.

Vaccinees will need to bring their vaccination card, Davao Safe QR, and their own ballpen to avoid sharing.

“Probably, 2 p.m. or 3 p.m. ang cut-off nato then i-finish na lang kung unsa ang naa didto (The cut-off will probably be around 2 p.m. or 3 p.m. so we can finish the remaining activities for the day),” said Schlosser.

“Mura syag walk-in na drive-thru kasi pwede ka mag drive thru na dili necessary registered ka didto basta dal-on lang nimo imong vaccination card, imong QR, and own ballpen (You do not necessarily need to be registered, just bring your vaccination card, QR, and own ballpen),” she added.

Previously, the drive-through vaccination was located at People’s Park Davao but was moved to Davao Crocodile Park to avoid causing heavy traffic.

“Taas kaayo ang linya sa drive-through so gibalhin nato sa Crocodile Park para safer for the people and mas less ang problema sa traffic (The drive-through line was very long that’s why we relocated it to Crocodile Park so it could be safer for everyone and with less traffic),” said Schlosser.
