Lafene Health Center prepared for vaccine administration
Kansas State University's Lafene Health Center has been selected as a vaccine distribution site. The university will be receiving and administering vaccines for students, faculty and staff based on the state and local priority groups and vaccine availability. Vaccines are not available at this time.
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment is responsible for allocating vaccines across the state. Lafene has not received vaccines yet or been given a date of vaccine delivery. However, the university is actively preparing for distribution so that vaccines can be administered as soon as possible after arrival.
"Throughout the duration of the pandemic, K-State has made every effort possible to keep our campus safe. This would include Lafene Health Center's effort to be a COVID-19 vaccine resource for current students, faculty, and staff," said Jim Parker, director of Lafene Health Center and Counseling Services at K-State. "I encourage everyone to remain vigilant in following University guidelines and watch for information about when vaccines will be available from Lafene."
The health of every K-Stater is the university's top priority. Vaccination has many benefits and will be an important part of making sure every Wildcat is a Wellcat. If you have any questions or concerns about the vaccine, please visit with your health care professional.
