K-Staters can get COVID-19 booster vaccines at multiple locations
All fully vaccinated Kansans over the age of 18 are now eligible for COVID-19 booster shots. Read the recent announcement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as the announcement from Gov. Laura Kelly and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
Individuals are eligible for booster shots if it has been at least six months since their primary vaccination series for the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines or it has been at least two months since their Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
COVID-19 vaccines and boosters are free and widely available. There are multiple ways for K-State students, faculty and staff to find a COVID-19 vaccine or booster.
- The state of Kansas offers a Find My Vaccine website.
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers the vaccines.gov website to search for a local COVID-19 vaccine appointment.
- Lafene Health Center continues to offer COVID-19 vaccine opportunities for students, faculty and staff as appointments are available. Appointments are required and can be made on the myLafene+ patient portal or by calling Lafene Health Center at 785-532-6544. Lafene is offering Moderna and Johnson & Johnson booster shots, but is not offering the Pfizer vaccine at this time.
- Local health departments continue to offer COVID-19 vaccine opportunities. Check with the Riley County Health Department, the Johnson County Health Department, the Saline County Health Department or the county health department where you live.
- Local pharmacies and private physicians also may offer COVID-19 vaccine opportunities. Contact those organizations for more information.
Vaccination continues to be the best protection against COVID-19. Learn more about COVID-19 vaccines at K-State.
