dc.description.abstractBetween 2001 and 2005, Somalis made up 25% of U.S. admitted refugees. Many sought refuge from famine and war faced by militia groups. Many refugees came to Minnesota for jobs, lower costs of living, higher minimum wage, and refugee social service opportunities. Many are now moving to rural areas, including Barron, WI, for new job opportunities, increased safety, and educational opportunities that do not require English language literacy. Many are drawn to occupational options at the Jennie-O meat packaging plant. Somali population in Barron between 1990 and 2010 increased 662%. Somalis now represent 13% of Barron’s population. Vaccines are important public health tools to reduce communicable diseases including COVID-19; however, vaccine hesitancy poses dangers to individuals and communities. This study explores attitudes and hesitancies in vaccine acceptance among the Somali community of Barron, WI.en_US
