COVID Vaccine: When will it be available to students?

The Coronavirus vaccine has finally been released and given to people in phases.

In Kansas, there is a timeline planned to slowly start giving the vaccine. The plan started in January with only healthcare workers, residents in Senior Housing or Long-Term Care facilities, and workers critical to the pandemic response.

We have moved to phase two, in late January allowing people above the age of 65, high-contact critical workers, and other unvaccinated prioritized persons from the first phase.

The phases are planning to move forward in March, Late April/Mid May, and June, as long as everything stays on track and the vaccine supply is still available. Anyone above the age of 16 is allowed to get the vaccine in the last phase, and the availability for children will be further researched as time goes on.

In conclusion, the vaccine should be able to be distributed to students around June.
