Change The World With Us

Everyone at Kite is grounded by one common goal – curing cancer. Every day, we aim to establish a direct line between that purpose and our day-to-day work.

We maintain an attitude of curiosity, and creativity with each challenge as we develop a new market for cancer therapies. We appreciate and respect one another, and most importantly, we don’t take success for granted.

While we’ve come a long way to make what others viewed as impossible, possible, we know one thing is certain. Today is just the beginning.

Following extensive monitoring, research, consideration of business implications and advice from internal and external experts, Kite has made the decision to require all U.S. employees and contractors to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of employment. The health of our employees, contractors, their loved ones, our partners and the communities and people we serve is a top priority. Vaccination is the most effective way currently available to deliver on that priority.

The purpose of the vaccination requirement is to minimize the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace and support the health and safety of our communities. A person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after the second dose of a two-dose vaccine or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine has been administered. Anyone unable to be vaccinated, either because of a sincerely held religious belief or a medical condition or disability that prevents them from being vaccinated, can request an accommodation.
