The Ministry of Health and Medical Services has started administering the second dose of COVID-19 vaccine this month.

For the second dose of vaccination roll-out the Ministry of Health is planning to set-up teams for respective sites across the country.

This will ensure that all Fijians will be able to access the vaccine without having to travel far or wait too long in queues. For the further convenience of the public, drive-through vaccination sites will be set-up.

The locations of the mobile vaccination teams will be announced early next week.

For those who are due to receive the second dose of vaccine, can go to their nearest vaccination site to get the jab. It is NOT COMPULSORY that you receive the second dose from the same vaccination site where you received your first dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Simply go to your nearest vaccination site or contact 158.

A reminder for the date of the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine will be sent to those who have been vaccinated with the first dose and had registered on the digital system.

Individuals can check their vaccine card to confirm their date of second dose of vaccination.

Further to this, 50,000 COVID-19 vaccines will arrive in the country later this week from Australia.

Next week, the Ministry of Health and Medical Services is expected to roll out the first dose of COVID-19 vaccination to the remaining front line workers and those who are constantly engaging with public given the nature of their work such as public service vehicle drivers, supermarket staff, people residing in densely populated areas, individuals who are over 60 years of age, persons with disabilities and those who may have comorbidity issues such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, kidney disease, asthma and other medical conditions.
