HELP KEEP YOURSELF, YOUR FAMILY, AND YOUR COMMUNITY SAFE AND HEALTHY.
GRI is committed to providing safe vaccines to our friends and family in the Black community. We provide FREE vaccines to children and adults. Available vaccines include routine childhood vaccines; COVID-19 vaccines and boosters for infants through adults; flu vaccines and other vaccines to prevent and/or reduce the impact of sexually transmitted infections.
COVID-19 is a virus identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Asia in late 2019 that has since spread globally into a pandemic. Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. While roughly 80% of cases report mild symptoms, some progress into severe pneumonia and multi-organ failure and can lead to death. If you are experiencing symptoms free testing is available.
Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
Fever or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
New loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
Look for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:
Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
Inability to wake or stay awake
Pale, gray, or blue-colored skin, lips, or nail beds, depending on skin tone
Call your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you.

Shame is the enemy of action.
Shame is the enemy of vulnerability and action. HIV is a virus just like COVID-19 or the Flu. HIV is not a crime. If you think you might have HIV, give us a call. We can help you get confidential testing and free treatment.
HIV and COVID-19
We are still learning about COVID-19 and how it affects people with HIV. Based on what we know at this time, people with HIV may be more likely to become severely ill from COVID-19.
Other factors can also make you more likely to become severely ill, such as age and certain underlying medical conditions. Older adults, people with certain medical conditions, and pregnant and recently pregnant people should take preventive actions to protect themselves from getting COVID-19.
