Reminder: GO-VAXX bus heading to Brock Thursday

Brock University will welcome the province’s mobile COVID-19 vaccine clinic to campus Thursday, Sept. 9.

As part of ongoing efforts to get as many people in the province vaccinated as possible, the Ontario government has partnered with Metrolinx to temporarily convert two GO Transit buses into mobile vaccination clinics.

The fully accessible GO-VAXX buses have been touring the Golden Horseshoe region since early August, offering anyone aged 12 and over first or second doses of the Health Canada-approved Pfizer vaccine.

One of the two buses will be set up in the Zone 3 parking lot at the main Brock University campus from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 9 offering vaccines to students, faculty, staff and anyone from the wider community.

The GO-VAXX buses are first-come, first-served walk-in clinics and do not offer appointments.

Anyone wishing to take advantage of the GO-VAXX bus to receive their vaccine is reminded to:

  • Bring your health card. If you do not have a health card or your health card is 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 to prevent feeling faint or dizzy while being vaccinated.
  • Dress for the weather in case there is a lineup.
  • Wear clothing that allows for easy access to the 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 the GO-VAXX bus if you have symptoms of COVID-19.
