The GO-VAXX bus is rolling into Oakville in early December.

The Ontario Government’s mobile COVID-19 vaccine clinic will be at the Trafalgar Park Community Centre, located at 133 Rebecca St., on Dec. 6 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The vaccine bus will be administering the COVID-19 vaccine, including booster doses. All GO-VAXX buses provide:

  • the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine for adults and youth ages 12 and up
  • the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine including, booster doses, for children aged five to 11
  • the bivalent mRNA COVID-19 booster for all eligible populations

Doses are available through appointments or walk-in.

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

All buses have a fully functioning vaccine clinic with the necessary staff and supplies.

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-VAXX bus if you have symptoms ofCOVID-19.
