The wheels on the GO-VAXX bus go round and round, and round they come back to Oakville.

The Ontario Government’s mobile COVID-19 vaccine clinic is making two planned stops in town over the next few days.

The GO-VAXX bus will roll into Coronation Park in Oakville on Saturday (Oct. 23) from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

It will then head over to Sheridan College, located at 1430 Trafalgar Road, on Tuesday (Oct. 26) from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

First and second doses are available for anyone born in 2009 or earlier (minimum 21-day interval).

No appointment is necessary. All buses are administering Pfizer vaccine.

The GO-VAXX  bus, a partnership between the provincial government and Metrolinx, provides a convenient way for people to receive their COVID-19 vaccine.

A fully functioning vaccine clinic with the necessary staff and supplies, the GO-VAXX buses are travelling to malls, festivals, community hubs and events throughout the summer and fall across the Greater Golden Horseshoe Region.

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 license, 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 theGO-VAXXbus if you have symptoms ofCOVID-19.
