The IRC in Atlanta's Community Health Response Manager, Dr. Omar Aziz, and the CORE Georgia DeKalb County vaccine team were featured on 11Alive news last week, along with community leader, Crispin Wilondja, and our friends at the Prevention Research Center at Georgia State University. We recently passed 7,000 vaccines provided!
#GetVaccinated with the IRC in Atlanta and CORE Georgia! Our team is at Clarkston First Baptist Church EVERY FRIDAY from 10am – 4pm. Vaccines are available to all, and people are automatically registered for their second dose on site. For the most current dates and locations for vaccinations, please visit our Facebook page.
In addition to providing vaccines directly to the communities we serve, the IRC is partnering with the National Resource Center for Refugees, Immigrants and Migrants (NRC-RIM) to help prevent and mitigate the spread and impact of COVID-19 in refugee, immigrant, and migrant (RIM) communities. This project is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and includes providing important information about the COVID-19 vaccines.
Through this project, we are thrilled to share unbranded, in-language posters and social media graphics with encouraging “Vaccination is…” messages about the COVID vaccine. These materials are available in English, Spanish, Haitian Creole, Arabic, Swahili, Kinyarwanda, Dari, Nepali, Somali, Ukrainian, and Russian, and were co-created with communities. You can download the posters and graphics here.
