Rep. Bierman

 

Dear Neighbors,

I’m looking forward to connecting with our community this Saturday at 9:00 a.m. for an in-person Community Coffee Hour at Dunn Bros in Apple Valley (15265 Galaxie Avenue). I hope you can make it for a hot beverage to let me know what’s on your mind.

If you can’t make it, I’ll be hosting a virtual Coffee Hour on Zoom on November 20 at 9:00 a.m. Please RSVP with my legislative assistant, Isabel, at Isabel.Anderson@House.MN to receive the information on how to join.

Following an extensive clinical trial and final recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for 5-11 year-olds, Minnesota will begin vaccinations for children this week. To aid families, the state has launched a new webpage to help parents and guardians find 5-11 year-old children a vaccine and answer questions they may have about the vaccine. 

The state has mobilized a diverse network of providers around the state – hospitals, clinics, local public health, Tribal health agencies, pharmacies, school located clinics and state-run community clinics – to administer vaccines to our children as quickly as possible.

How Minnesotans ages 5 and older can get their free shot: 

Minnesotans looking to vaccinate their child can:

  • Visit mn.gov/vaxforkids to find clinic locations near you.
  • Check with?their pediatrician, family medicine clinic or pharmacy about?appointments.
  • Watch for vaccination clinics being offered at schools or other community locations around Minnesota.

Before you go, make sure the vaccine location provides the Pfizer vaccine to 5-11-year-olds. Not all Pfizer vaccine providers will have the vials specifically packaged for 5-11 year old doses in their supply.

Minnesotans with questions about the vaccine can also call the Minnesota Department of Health COVID-19 Public Hotline at 1-833-431-2053. The hotline is available Monday - Friday from 9 a.m. - 7 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.

 

Keep in Touch

Please reach out anytime with questions, input, or ideas at rep.robert.bierman@house.mn or 651-296-5506. The 2022 legislative session is just around the corner and I appreciate hearing from you.  

Take care.

Sincerely,

Robert Bierman

State Representative
