COVID-19 Information

Our students and parents have many questions about the COVID-19 vaccine, now available for people 12 years old and older. We realize that choosing to vaccinate or not is a very personal decision that is best met with careful consideration and education. To support our families as they make this important decision, NDA recently brought together a team of NDA alumnae in the medical field to educate our community about the COVID-19 vaccine at a Parent Information Session. 

In line with our mission of educating women to make a difference in the world, Dr. Shelly Voet of Pediatric Associates began our Parent Information Session with a presentation addressing the following goals:
  • Discuss COVID-19 disease
  • Discuss COVID-19 in teens
  • Discuss the mRNA vaccine now available for teens 12-15 years
  • Discuss benefits, risks, contraindications and precautions with COVID-19 vaccination

If you were unable to attend NDA's Parent Information Session regarding the COVID-19 vaccination for adolescents, you can find Dr. Voet's presentation HERE

You can also find vaccination information here from Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center here: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information | Vaccines: What You Need to Know

According to our
physician's panel, many pediatrician offices are, or will soon be offering the COVID-19 vaccine in their offices for eligible patients. Local pharmacies are offering it as well. If you are vaccinated at a pharmacy, please send your vaccination information to your primary care physician. You can find more information regarding vaccinating children 12+ HERE
