Stay Safe

Wear a Mask

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

Keep a Safe Distance

Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms length) from other people

Vaccinate

Get the COVID-19 vaccine when it's your turn

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.
