The government will be making a formal announcement today about the lifting of containment borders on Viti Levu as Fiji has achieved 61.9 percent full vaccination rate.
Ministry of Health’s Permanent Secretary, Doctor James Fong says 363, 420 adults in Fiji have received their second dose of the vaccine and 577,005 have received their first dose.
Dr Fong says their team has been validating vaccination data for the past two weeks to ensure the level of protection across Viti Levu is equitably distributed.
He says they are currently validating areas of concern and they will be outlining further measures to reduce the risk that travelers will place on these areas of concern.
The Permanent Secretary says until the announcement is made, all current measures remain in force.
