Notre Dame College is providing students the opportunity to receive the COVID-19 vaccine on campus as part of the “We’re in This Together Ohio” campaign against the global pandemic.
The State of Ohio is delivering the Johnson & Johnson one-dose vaccine to colleges and universities throughout the state. Notre Dame has requested 800 doses to begin delivering to students the first full week in April. Current students interested in receiving the vaccine can register using an online form.
The College recommends that all of its students and employees accept the vaccine to insure the health and safety of the campus community. Receiving the vaccine, however, is voluntary.
Ohio is vaccinating postsecondary students as part of Gov. Mike DeWine’s efforts to improve the state’s vaccination rate. The effort involves public state college and universities as well as private higher education institutions.
Although fewer young people tend to become sick with COVID-19, the governor has said college students can be carriers of the virus and may spread it because they interact more frequently with others.
Notre Dame has been conducting on-campus classes and activities using its innovative Falcon Flex hybrid model of delivery since the start of the pandemic. With this flexible model, students have robust classroom experiences combined with technology-based remote attendance to allow social distancing to be maintained in classrooms and laboratories.
Students have had full access to academic, social and emotional support services throughout the pandemic. In accordance with NCAA regulations, student-athletes also began participating in sports competitions this spring.
In early April, Notre Dame had performed a total of 4,567 COVID tests in 2021; had five active cases; and 64 previous, verified recovered cases. In 2020, the College reported a total of 186 tests and 75 previous, verified recovered cases. The online campus dashboard is updated regularly.
