SEC commissioner Greg Sankey spoke at the SEC Media Days on Monday and said that six of the 14 schools from the league have reached 80% vaccination.

LSU is one of those schools and is up to 90% vaccinated, according to Brooks Kubena with The Advocate.

Once a team reaches the 85% vaccination threshold, the SEC no longer requires it to test that team regularly or wear masks inside its facilities.

HOOVER, Ala. — The LSU football team has a vaccination rate above 90%, a source confirmed with The Advocate, which means the Tigers have more flexibility within Southeastern Conference medical protocols and are less likely to possibly forfeit games if their schedule is disrupted by coronavirus outbreaks.

SEC commissioner Greg Sankey said Monday he's recommended not to reschedule games due to outbreaks within teams this season, emphasizing the need for teams to join public safety measures against a coronavirus pandemic that has surged once again with its deadly Delta variant.
