Posted Nov 23, 2021 11:41 AM

Kansas State University has seen 455 employees file religious or medical exemptions to the COVID-19 vaccine mandate. That number is about five percent of the institution’s approximately 9,200 employees, according to K-State officials. 

Those employees filing an exemption request were notified of their approval or denial Friday. 

K-State officials say that a little over 80 percent of employees have been vaccinated. 

KSU workers must upload proof of COVID-19 vaccination to the Lafene Health Center website. 

The deadline for university employees to be fully vaccinated is January 4 or face termination January 9.  

The deadline for employees to receive at least the first round of vaccinations is Nov. 29.
