As part of ongoing efforts to get as many people as possible vaccinated with two full doses and a booster shot, the Ontario government is offering several opportunities over the coming weeks, including two GO-VAXX bus vaccine clinics at Brock University.
The fully accessible GO-VAXX bus will be on campus (location to be determined) on Friday, Jan. 7 and again on Monday, Jan. 10 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Vaccines, including boosters, will be offered. In response to the increased demand for vaccine doses, effective Dec. 26, all GO-VAXX mobile buses will be scheduling appointments through Ontario’s booking portal. Walk-ins will no longer be accepted, as appointments will be required. To book an appointment, please go through Ontario’s booking portal or call the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900. Students, faculty, staff and anyone from the wider community are welcome.
The Ontario government has partnered with Metrolinx to temporarily convert two GO Transit buses into mobile vaccination clinics, which have been touring the Golden Horseshoe region since early August. A GO-VAXX bus was at Brock in early September.
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.
