A total of 252 Police officers in the Northern Division received their first jab of the COVID-19 vaccine at the Labasa Police Station bure yesterday.

Deputy Divisional Police Commander Northern (DDPC) Superintendent of Police (SP) Luke Cerenasiga said they were expecting to roll out to other districts for their Police officers to be vaccinated on this first phase.

“There are many reasons to get vaccinated,” SP Cerenasiga said.

“Firstly to protect our officers from contracting COVID-19 and secondly because we’re in the frontline of the containment of this virus across Fiji.

“On the economic impact, we will be again covering the borders, should it open.

“For the protection of the officers, it is important that they all be vaccinated as they will also be part of the Blue Lane initiative in Savusavu.

“Most of our officers will be on the frontline of the border and they will be partaking in securing the borders in this Blue Lane initiative.”

SP Cerenasiga said it is very important for everyone in Fiji to get vaccinated to be protected and to keep Fiji COVID-contained.
