The Grey Bruce Health Unit is working with the provincial team to arrange for the GO-VAXX bus to be in Grey Bruce soon.

The Go-VAXX bus is scheduled for two COVID-19 clinics locally. The dates and locations are as follows:

Durham Community Centre, 451 Saddler Street West Durham ON

Monday October 25 from 11-5:

Ripley Community Centre, 17 Queen St, Ripley ON

This GO-VAXX bus will provide yet another avenue for residents of Grey and Bruce to get their COVID-19 vaccine.

Anyone meeting the criteria below can receive their vaccine at the GO-VAXX bus:

  • Clients needing their first or second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine
  • Anyone born in 2009 or earlier is eligible to be vaccinated

In Addition:

  • No appointment needed
  • The bus is wheelchair accessible
  • Trained medical staff will be available to answer any questions and discuss any concerns

About the buses:

  • The Ontario government is partnering with Metrolinx for a new, convenient option for people to receive their COVID-19 vaccine.
  • Two GO Buses have been converted to serve as mobile vaccine clinics as part of the province’s last mile strategy to target those who have yet to receive a first or second dose.
  • The GO-VAXX buses are travelling to malls, festivals, community hubs and events throughout the summer and fall across the Greater Golden Horseshoe Region.
  • Each bus operates as a fully functioning 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 will be followed on board, including the required pre-vaccination screening and post-vaccination monitoring.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a small donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
