Lafene Health Center offers limited vaccine clinic to faculty, staff and students

Submitted by Lafene Health Center

Kansas State University’s Lafene Health Center has received a limited number of vaccines for current K-State faculty, staff and students.

Kansas is currently in phase 2 in the state vaccination plan. All those age 65 and older and all high-contact critical workers are now prioritized for vaccination, in addition to anyone from phase 1 who has not been vaccinated.

If you completed the survey in your patient portal indicating an interest in this vaccine and are eligible for this clinic, you should have received an email invitation this week from Lafene Health Center.

Appointments are required and should be made on the myLafene+ patient portal. If no appointments are available, the clinic is full for the day. 

For people who received an email indicating they are eligible and made an appointment, the vaccine clinic will be Friday, Feb. 26, at the Chester E. Peters Recreation Complex. Parking is available at the west end of the Rec Complex parking area and no parking tickets will be issued during the vaccine clinic. Enter the clinic through the north entrance of the Rec Complex. Wear a face covering, maintain physical distancing and follow university health and wellness guidance during the clinic.

The day of the clinic you must bring your driver’s license or your K-State ID card for identification. You also will need to complete the COVID-19 Vaccination Consent Form and the Treatment Agreement/Notice of Privacy Practices. You also should review the Emergency Use Authorization for Moderna and the Notice of Privacy Practices before your appointment. If you have questions regarding the content of the EUA, you will have an opportunity to discuss this with a nurse or health care provider before receiving the vaccination. 

If you are symptomatic or have been identified as a close contact and are in quarantine, you are not eligible to receive the vaccine. If you have already received your first dose of vaccine from another facility, you should schedule your second dose with that same provider.

More information about the COVID-19 vaccine and a list of frequently asked questions can be found on the K-State COVID-19 vaccine information website.
