“We are so grateful to residents stepping up to get vaccinated. Your City team worked with the Province to secure additional opportunities to do that, by bringing additional GO VAXX clinics to Burlington.
We appreciate the sacrifices everyone has made and continues to make to get through this pandemic together. Brighter days are ahead in 2022!” — Burlington Mayor Marianne Meed Ward

- Eligibility: Who Can Get Vaccinated
The City of Burlington actively submitted an application to the Province of Ontario for the GO-VAXX bus to come to Burlington. The Province of Ontario operates the GO-VAXX mobile vaccination clinics as part of the province’s strategy to get COVID-19 vaccines to Ontarians. The number of available vaccinations at the mobile clinics is determined by the Province of Ontario. The City sought to support vaccination efforts by securing an appropriate local site to host the mobile clinics and share this additional vaccine opportunity with Burlington residents.
The mobile clinics are one more opportunity to get vaccinated, but there are many other ways to do so, including Halton Region clinics, pharmacies, community and paediatric clinics and doctors’ offices. Halton Region COVID-19 vaccination clinic information can be found at Halton – COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics.
The City is also working with the Province to bring two walk-in, indoor clinics to our city early in 2022. Further details will be communicated with the public once confirmed.
