GO-Vaxx Bus – COVID-19 Vaccine Bus Coming to Grey-Bruce

 

The Grey Bruce Health Unit is working with the provincial team to arrange for the GO-VAXX bus to be in Grey Bruce soon!

 

The Go-VAXX bus is scheduled for two COVID-19 clinics locally.  The dates and locations are as follows:

 

  • Durham Community Centre, 451 Saddler Street West Durham ON
    • Sunday October 24 from 11-5
  • Ripley Community Centre, 17 Queen St, Ripley ON
    • Monday October 25 from 11-5.

 

This GO-VAXX bus will provide yet another avenue for residents of Grey and Bruce to get their COVID-19 vaccine. 

 

Anyone meeting the criteria below can receive their vaccine at the GO-VAXX bus:

  • Clients needing their first or second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine
  • Anyone born in 2009 or earlier is eligible to be vaccinated

 

In Addition:

  • No appointment needed
  • The bus is wheelchair accessible
  • Trained medical staff will be available to answer any questions and discuss any concerns

 

About the buses:

 

The Ontario government is partnering with Metrolinx for a new, convenient option for people to receive their COVID-19 vaccine.

 

Two GO Buses have been converted to serve as mobile vaccine clinics as part of the province’s last mile strategy to target those who have yet to receive a first or second dose.

 

The GO-VAXX buses are travelling to malls, festivals, community hubs and events throughout the summer and fall across the Greater Golden Horseshoe Region.

 

Each bus operates as a fully functioning vaccine clinic with the necessary supplies and trained staff to provide assistance to people and ensure vaccines are administered safely.

 

All COVID-19 safety precautions will be followed on board, including the required pre-vaccination screening and post-vaccination monitoring.
