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.
Your immune system builds an immune response making antibodies, similar to what happens in a natural infection against COVID-19.
Your body learns how to protect against future infection without having to risk the severe consequences of getting sick with COVID-19.
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.
