Lafene Health Center completes first COVID-19 vaccine clinic
Lafene Health Center, in partnership with Housing and Dining Services and Recreational Services, administered 870 vaccines to Kansas State University faculty, staff and students at its first COVID-19 vaccination clinic. This included persons from the Manhattan, Polytechnic and Olathe campuses. Those eligible met the criteria for phase 1 or 2 of the state vaccination plan.
"We had a very successful vaccination clinic on Friday," said Jim Parker, director of Lafene Health Center. "With mass vaccine clinics, such as occurred on Friday, we will quickly move from phase 2 to phase 3 of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment's vaccine distribution plan. This is a large and important undertaking to help keep every Wildcat a Wellcat."
All current K-State students, faculty and staff interested in receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, are encouraged to complete the Lafene interest survey in the myLafene+ patient portal. You can also request a vaccine from the county where you live.
Future vaccination clinics will be set when vaccines are received from the county. Announcements will be made through K-State Today and those eligible for the clinic will receive an email invitation to schedule an appointment.
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.
