The province’s GO-VAXX mobile vaccination clinic is rolling back through London-Middlesex this month.

The bus is scheduled to make half a dozen stops in the area throughout August according to health officials with the Middlesex-London Health Unit (MLHU).

“GO-VAXX bus clinics continue to be offered as part of a broader effort to reach individuals and families who have not yet received the COVID-19 vaccine because of inconvenient clinic locations, scheduling and limited transportation options,” a release from MLHU read.

The GO-VAXX bus will make its first stop this Sunday at the North Middlesex Community Centre located at 224 McLeod Street in Parkhill from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

to 5 p.m.

Appointments are not required to attend GO-VAXX clinics the health unit said. However, vaccines for children who are over six months of age, but under five-years-old, will not be available at the mobile bus clinics.
