A Community-Based Response to COVID-19

The Immigrant Refugee Coalition is working to stop the spread of COVID-19 by reaching immigrant and refugee communities.

Properly wearing a mask can help keep you safe and reduce the risk of spreading the virus.

Wash Your Hands

Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds

Stay Home

When Sick

Vaccinate and Get Boosted

Californians over the age of 6-months are eligible to get vaccinated.  The COVID-19 bivalent booster is recommended for ages 5 and up.

How the COVID-19 Vaccine Works

Train Your Body

The COVID-19 vaccine works by teaching your body which proteins to produce to fight COVID-19 infection, and is given in your upper arm.

Gain Immunity

Your immune system builds an immune response making antibodies, similar to what happens in a natural infection against COVID-19.

Stay Protected

Your body learns how to protect against future infection without having to risk the severe consequences of getting sick with COVID-19.

Helping Those

Most Affected

When COVID-19 hit our community, it didn't affect everyone the same. Some people already had a hard time finding a place to go see a doctor, living paycheck to paycheck, and experiencing language barriers and discrimination.
