Powering 9W UVC bulb

Greetings from New York. I managed to get a Phillips TUV PL-S UVC bulb which i intend to use in a DIY disinfection box. I need help figuring out what kind of ballast I need use with it. It's a 9W, 0.17A, 60V bulb with a G23 cap base. Can you point me to something preferably available from lowes of home depot, or aquarium store please? I'm comfortable soldering the connections if I can't find a base for it. How do I go from AC to power this bulb? With most stores closing I need to get this kit together ASAP. Thank you for your help.

Welcome to the forums.

I see many kits available that come with the ballast and socket. Some as low as $15 on ebay.
I don't see anything available at depot or lowes for that bulb.

Didn't search the aquarium stores..... you can do that.
