The GO-VAXX bus is returning to Sarnia-Lambton about a month after being met with protests.

The province’s mobile vaccine clinic will stop at the Petrolia Farmers’ Market on Fletcher Street on Wednesday.

The clinic will be held from 12 p.m. until 5 p.m. Walk-ins for third doses and children between the ages of five and 11 will be accepted, in addition to those 12 years of age and up seeking a first or second dose.

The GO-VAXX bus previously made stops in Sarnia, Mooretown, and Petrolia at the beginning of November. During that time, Lambton Medical Officer of Health Dr. Sudit Ranade said about 225 first and second doses were administered.

Sarnia’s mayor previously said during a county council meeting that he was embarrassed for Lambton County after the GO-VAXX bus encountered some pushback.

Lambton Public Health will also hold a vaccine clinic on Wednesday at the Shores Recreation Centre from 10:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Walk-ins will be accepted for those 12 and up who need a first or second shot, but appointments will be required for third doses and young children aged five to 11.
