Family Focus

PurposeFull Pursuit:

Create a space where your family can see emotion words or faces in 1 place near an entrance of a room (like the kitchen or the living room). Each time someone walks through the entrance this week (or longer!), have them share the emotion they are feeling in a Creative way. You could point, dance, stare, do charades, etc.

Emotion Elements & Emotion Words: [Air] represents emotions like nervous, distracted, inspired, or anxious. We use the character [Water] to represent emotions like sad, lonely, tired, or embarrassed. [Fire] represents emotions like anger, frustration, excitement, or fear. [Earth] represents emotions like comfortable, relaxed, motivated, or loving.

Conversation Starters:

  • Can you share with me a time when you were able to use Creativity to solve a problem recently? How were you feeling?
  • Why do you think it is important to share how we feel to others?

Reminder: Vaccine available for children 5 to 11 years old

Governor Tim Walz announced that Minnesotans can schedule appointments for children ages 5-11 to receive an updated bivalent booster at state-run vaccination sites. The announcement follows updated recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that expanded the use of updated (bivalent) COVID-19 vaccines to children ages 5 through 11 years to protect them against newer Omicron variants.

Minnesota health care providers are ready to administer new COVID-19 booster shots for ages 5 and older that have been formulated to be more effective against the Omicron variants. Attached you will find high-level talking points on the Bivalent vaccine.

The Pfizer bivalent booster is now available for people 5 and older and the Moderna bivalent vaccine is now available for people 6 and older.Both products can be given as soon as two months after a primary vaccine series or booster vaccination. Children 5-11 receive a smaller dose than people age 12 and older. The bivalent vaccines are only recommended for use as a booster.

The updated COVID-19 boosters can both help restore protection that has decreased since previous vaccination and provide broader protection against newer variants. The COVID-19 vaccines and the updated booster are safe and help protect people from getting very sick with COVID-19. Even if you’ve already had COVID-19, you should get vaccinated.

State-Run Vaccination Sites

Vaccination will start this week at the state-run vaccination sites at Mall of America, Duluth, Moorhead, Rochester, and St. Paul. Parents can start making appointments now.

All state-run vaccination sites will offer the Pfizer bivalent boosters. Appointments are recommended but walk ins will be accepted.

Where to Get a Bivalent Booster

There are several options for where to get a bivalent booster.

  • Check with your regular health care provider or local pharmacy to see if appointments are available.
  • Minnesotans can make appointments at the state-run vaccination sites now: State Run Sites
  • Use the state’s Find Vaccine Locations map to find vaccine providers near you—providers will update their information as appointments are available.
  • Check for vaccine appointments at, where you can search for appointments by vaccine type (e.g., Pfizer).
  • Watch for vaccination clinics being offered at other community locations around Minnesota.
