The GO-VAXX bus will be parked at various locations where people can get a first or second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
The one-day pop-up clinics being held this week are walk-ins, so no appointment is necessary. Vaccinations are available on a first-come basis, while supplies last. The list of clinics is updated frequently and individuals should visit the health unit’s website for more information.
Immunizations are also available to residents by walk-in only at the COVID-19 Immunization Centre on Sperling Drive in Barrie Sundays to Thursdays. Information about the clinic times is available on the health unit’s website.
Vaccines are also available through participating pharmacies, the Barrie Family Health Team, the Couchiching Ontario Health Team Clinic, and some health care providers, and limited appointments at local health unit offices.

When attending a clinic, individuals are encouraged to dress for the weather as they may be required to wait outdoors before entering the clinic. They are also reminded to bring a health card, a list of any medications they are taking, wear a loose-fitting shirt that allows easy access to the upper arm and bring any assistive devices as needed (e.g., scooter, wheelchair, cane).
