Mobile COVID-19 vaccine clinic on the road again

The North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit’s mobile vaccine clinic is back on the move. 

The clinic is a retrofitted North Bay Transit bus offering the Moderna, Pfizer and pediatric Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to eligible individuals across the district.

Starting this month, individuals can walk into a mobile clinic to receive their vaccination.

“Last summer we launched the mobile vaccine clinic, which saw great success. Relaunching now makes sense with the warmer weather, increased eligibility for fourth doses and people looking to receive their primary vaccine series and booster dose(s),” says Dr. Carol Zimbalatti, Public Health Physician. “As COVID-19 continues to circulate in the community, staying up-to-date on all recommended vaccines remains one of the most important tools to protect ourselves and our communities against the impact of COVID-19.”

Zimbalatti says the mobile vaccine clinic reduces barriers by making COVID-19 vaccines more accessible across the district.

Locations, dates and times for the mobile vaccine clinic are available on the Health Unit’s website at myhealthunit.ca/GetVaccinated.

“Last year’s collaboration on the mobile vaccine clinic allowed the Health Unit to reach people all across their district and the City of North Bay is proud to once again support this initiative,” says Mayor Al McDonald.

As of Wednesday, May 18, 2022, there have been 5,877 cases of COVID-19 and 41 deaths in the district since the start of the pandemic.
