Ontario’s GO-VAXX Mobile Vaccination Bus Coming to Listowel

Huron Perth, ON – The Ontario GO-VAXX mobile clinic bus will be heading to Listowel next week to provide first, second, and booster doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, as well as the paediatric Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children aged five to 11. No appointment is required. Vaccines are available while supplies last.

Anyone born in 2016 or earlier can get their first or second dose. Booster doses will be available for those who are eligible. To receive a booster dose you must be eligible and enough time must have passed since your second dose. Check the HPPH third dose calculator to find out if you are eligible for a booster and when you can receive one. Please note that individuals aged 18-49, whose only eligibility is age, are not able to receive boosters until Jan. 4, 2022.

The GO-VAXX clinics will be available as follows:

Tuesday, December 14 | Steve Kerr Memorial Complex | 965 Binning Street West, Listowel | 1:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Wednesday, December 15 | North Perth Municipal Office | 330 Wallace Avenue North, Listowel | 1:00 pm – 7:00 pm

The GO-VAXX bus operates as a fully functioning, fully accessible vaccine clinic with the necessary supplies and trained staff to provide assistance to people and ensure vaccines are administered safely. All COVID-19 safety precautions are followed on board, including the required pre-vaccination screening and post-vaccination monitoring.

“We’re pleased to welcome the GO-VAXX bus back to Huron Perth next week,” says Dr. Miriam Klassen, Medical Officer of Health. “We continue to see a steady number of new cases in Huron Perth, and being fully vaccinated is the best protection against COVID-19; I encourage anyone who has yet to get their COVID-19 vaccine and is eligible, to attend one of these mobile clinics to get vaccinated as soon as possible.”

For anyone wishing to attend one of the GO-VAXX mobile clinics next week, please remember to wear a mask and bring your health card with you if you have one, or another form of identification. Wear clothing that allows for easy access to your upper arm such as a loose-fitting top or a t-shirt, and dress for the weather in case there is a line-up.
