MANHATTAN (KSNT) – Kansas State University has paused its vaccine requirement after a federal judge blocked President Joe Biden’s executive order requiring the COVID-19 vaccine for federal employees, contractors, and others.

In an online statement K-State said, “effective immediately, Kansas State University will pause its COVID-19 vaccine requirement. At this time, employees do not need to take any further action related to the vaccine requirement.”

Students can still get vaccinated at the Lafene Health Center, their local health department, local pharmacies, or private physicians. 

The health and safety of our faculty, staff and students remains our top priority. I wish to thank everyone in the K-State community who is vaccinated. We encourage people to get vaccinated if they have not done so already. Vaccines are free and widely available. They have been proven safe after millions of inoculations and continue to offer strong protection against COVID-19.
