Published January 19, 2022 at 1:17 pm
A walk-in GO-VAXX indoor clinic will soon be making a pair of appearances at Sherwood Forest Park in Burlington.
Both clinics will be offering the full range of doses, first, second, third and pediatric, on a first-come, first-serve basis on Jan. 22 and Feb. 5 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Located at 5270 Fairview St., the following scheduled will be followed at the clinics:
- 10 a.m. –3 p.m. : Moderna for ages 30 years of age and older
- 3:15 – 4:45 p.m. : Adult Pfizer for ages 12 to 29 years of age
- 5 – 6 p.m. : Paediatric Pfizer: ages 5 (on the day of the clinic) to 11 years of age
“Vaccinations are typically provided by the Province and administered by Halton Region public health, local pharmacies or doctors’ offices. So, when we learned of an opportunity recently for the City to work with the Province directly to bring additional clinics to Burlington, we jumped on it,” said Mayor Marianne Meed Ward.
“These additional clinics provide yet another opportunity to get your first, second or booster shots faster than you otherwise would have been able to, and will help in our collective efforts to slow down the spread and severity of COVID-19. If you are still waiting to get vaccinated, please take advantage of this additional opportunity. This helps protect you, your family and friends, our whole community and hospital capacities.”
There will be approximately 320 vaccine doses administered during each vaccine clinic.
These GO-VAXX Indoor Walk-In Clinics are in addition to the two GO-VAXX Mobile Bus Clinics at Sherwood Forest Park on Monday, Jan. 24 and Monday, Jan. 31.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
