Brampton residents will be able to get walk-in COVID-19 vaccinations when GO-VAXX mobile clinics roll into town starting on Wednesday (Feb. 9).

There are three GO-VAXX clinics scheduled for Brampton visits throughout February with walk-ins are welcome at the mobile clinics.

On Wednesday, a mobile clinic will be in Brampton for walk-in or scheduled appointments between 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Wilkinson Road Shelter located at 15 Wilkinson Road.

There are two other GO-VAXX stops scheduled for Brampton in February:

  • Feb. 13 from 9:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. – Masjid Mubarak Mosque, 10545 Hurontario St.
  • Feb. 17 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. – YMCA ,20 Union St.

You can either drop by for a walk-in or book an appointment by visiting the COVID-19 vaccination portal or by calling the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900.

Officials are asking people with COVID-19 symptoms not to visit the GO-VAXX bus.

The mobile vaccine clinics are a partnership between Metrolinx, local public health units and the province, and a key part of Ontario’s “last mile strategy,” which focuses on community-based and easy-to-access settings for vaccinations.

The province is working with local public health units and municipalities to determine specific sites based on local data and needs including areas with low vaccination rates to support localized vaccination strategies.

There are now six GO-VAXX buses on the road, with another two set to join the fleet by the end of February.

The province says the buses have administered more than 42,000 doses at over 440 clinics since they debuted last August, and have visited communities across 24 of Ontario’s public health units.

What to bring with you to a GO-VAXX mobile clinic

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.
