The Province of Ontario’s GO-VAXX bus — a mobile COVID-19 vaccination clinic — might soon make a stop near you later this month.

According to the Middlesex-London Health Unit (MLHU), the bus will return to London, Ont. and Middlesex County for several visits throughout the month of May.

The first visit is scheduled for this Thursday and the bus will visit the Lucan Biddulph Community Memorial Centre, before stopping at London’s Sherwood Forest Mall on Friday.

According to the MLHU, the purpose of the GO-VAXX bus is to increase “opportunities for local residents to get their COVID-19 vaccinations and supporting residents who haven’t been able to access mass vaccination clinics” and to “reach people who have not yet been vaccinated due to barriers, such as convenience and limited transportation options.”

The mobile clinic will provide first, second and booster doses to those who are eligible. Anyone interested in receiving a COVID-19 vaccine can do so on a walk-in basis.
