OHPA Mask Statement

OHPA Mask Statement

In the midst of the controversy surrounding the need to wear masks in school, the physicians at Old Harding Pediatric Associates would like to clearly state our position on the issue:

We fully support the recommendations put forth by the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics that ALL students, regardless of age or vaccination status, should wear a mask while at school. While we recognize that masks are not a guarantee against the spread or contraction of COVID-19, they have clearly shown to help decrease these rates. Like immunizations for our older patients, masks are a tool in the arsenal to combat the spread of COVID and help keep our patients safe and in school.

COVID-19 Vaccine Information and Recommendations:
OHPA recommends that all eligible patients receive a COVID-19 vaccine. We encourage breastfeeding moms to receive the vaccine as well. OHPA is in the process of getting state approval to administer the vaccine in our offices. If your child is able to receive the vaccine elsewhere, we recommend that they are vaccinated as soon as possible. As a reminder Pfizer is the only approved vaccine for 12 and over. Patients 18 and over can get Moderna, Pfizer, or Johnson & Johnson. OHPA recommends any of these approved vaccines. You can find locations for COVID-19 vaccines here or here.
