GO-VAXX Bus – Returns to Grey-Bruce

 

The Grey Bruce Health Unit is happy to announce the return of the GO-VAXX bus to Grey Bruce!

 

GO-VAXX bus is coming to:

 

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

 

All individuals wanting first, second, third and booster doses (as eligible), as well as the paediatric Pfizer vaccine for children aged five to 11 can book their appointments as of 8-9 am on January 7th

 

How to book an appointment:

GO-VAXX clinics are by appointment only. Walk-ins will no longer be accepted.

 

To book an appointment, visit the COVID-19covid 19 vaccination portal or call the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900.

 

Each GO-VAXX bus carries approximately 250 to 300 doses per day.

 

About the buses

The Ontario government has partnered with Metrolinx to provide a safe, reliable and convenient option for people to receive their COVID-19covid 19 vaccine. GO buses have been converted to serve as mobile vaccine clinics to get COVID-19 vaccines directly to people, wherever they are located – travelling to malls, festivals, community hubs and events across Southern Ontario and beyond. This includes first, second, third and booster doses, as well as the paediatric Pfizer vaccine for children aged five to 11.

 

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.

 

The buses are fully accessible.

 

What to bring with you:

If you would like to get vaccinated at a GO-VAXX bus mobile clinic, remember to:

  • bring your health card — if you do not have a health card or if it’s expired, bring another form of government-issued photo identification such as a driver’s licence, passport, status card or birth certificate
  • eat and drink something before you arrive at your appointment to prevent feeling faint or dizzy while being vaccinated
  • dress for the weather in case there is a line-up
  • wear clothing that allows for easy access to your upper arm, such as a loose-fitting top or a t-shirt
  • wear a mask that covers your nose, mouth and chin

 

Do not visit the GO-VAXX bus if you have symptoms of COVID-19.
