Currently, Crocodile Park has been used for Drive-thru vaccinations only.

Schlosser is also inviting vendors to be inoculated at the People’s Park vaccination site while Persons with Disabilities can also avail of the drive-thru at the People’s Park.

Schlosser said that the available brands for the vaccination in the said sites are Pfizer and Moderna.
