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:
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.
