GO-VAXX bus to roll into Oakville Place, so hop on and get your jab
Published September 1, 2021 at 4:29 pm
An Ontario government GO-VAXX bus is making a planned stop in Oakville on Thursday.
The mobile COVID-19 vaccine clinic will roll into Oakville Place, located at 240 Leighland Ave., from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The bus, a partnership between the provincial government and Metrolinx, provides a new, convenient way for people to receive their COVID-19 vaccine.
First and second doses are available for anyone born in 2009 or earlier.
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.
No appointment is necessary. All buses are administering Pfizer vaccine.
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
