How to find a COVID-19 vaccine
All Kansas State University employees must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by Wednesday, Dec. 8, to comply with the recent federal executive order that requires the COVID-19 vaccine for federal contractors. This requirement applies to all K-State faculty and staff as well as graduate and undergraduate student employees.
Wednesday, Oct. 27, is the last day that individuals can receive the first dose of the two-dose Moderna vaccine to be fully vaccinated by the Dec. 8 deadline.
Wednesday, Nov. 3, is the last day that individuals can receive the first dose of the two-dose Pfizer vaccine to be fully vaccinated by the Dec. 8 deadline.
Wednesday, Nov. 24, is the last day that individuals can receive the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine to be fully vaccinated by the Dec. 8 deadline.
COVID-19 vaccines are free and widely available. There are multiple ways for K-Staters to find a COVID-19 vaccine.
