April 22, 2021 12:35 pm
The Health Ministry is working to ensure COVID-safe measures are in place at all vaccination centres before the next vaccination phase.
Head of the COVID-19 Vaccination Taskforce Dr Rachel Devi says it is essential that COVID-19 protocols are observed in all vaccination centres to avoid the possibility of local transmission.
She adds while the Ministry of Health is working towards containing the virus, they also know they need to vaccinate people to offer a certain level of protection against the virus.
”We’ll definitely continue to use all COVID-19 measures in place to ensure we use them for roll-outs, even to the point of queuing up and that will be controlled pretty well. That is absolutely essential for us.”
The Ministry of Health will soon announce the detail of the next COVID vaccination drive and Fijians are urged to register online through the registration portal.
