The GO-VAXX mobile vaccine clinic is returning to Norfolk and Haldimand in November.
The converted Metrolinx bus will be in the area the next three Saturdays to administer first, second, and third doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. First, in Haldimand, at the Canboro Community Centre in Canborough on November 13. The bus moves to Norfolk the following Saturday, November 20, at Boston Public School. And finally, it ends its journey at the Port Rowan Community Centre on November 27. All of these clinics run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“Partnering with the GO-VAXX team allows us to offer clinics in new locations, and more rural areas, in order to ensure our community has every opportunity to receive the vaccine, ” said Sarah Page, Haldimand-Norfolk Vaccine Rollout lead and chief of Paramedic Services for Norfolk County. “We’re excited to have them back in our counties – in Canborough, Boston and Port Rowan over the next few weeks, and hope people take the opportunity to experience this convenient and efficient way to get their first, second or third dose.”
Anyone born in 2009 or earlier is eligible – and no appointment is required. The bus is fully accessible and staffed with trained medical professionals available to answer any questions and discuss any concerns.
