COVID-19 Vaccination Sites are Safe Spaces
for Immigrants

The Department of Homeland Security implemented a COVID-19-specific policy that designates COVID-19 vaccination sites as sensitive locations. This means that no federal immigration enforcement activities will take place at or near these sites. If you hear of any enforcement activities occurring, please contact the National Health Law Program here.
Multilingual COVID-19 Resources
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has resources in eight languages available that outline how individuals and families can get the care they need during COVID-19 and provide information about health coverage plans. Learn more here.
