Vaccine:

An additional 70,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccines will arrive in Fiji from Australia over the next week.

The arrival of these vaccines will bring Australia’s total vaccine contribution to Fiji to 250,000 doses out of the one million pledged to Fiji.

“We’re grateful that the commitment to deliver 40,000 vaccines per month has been exceeded. Australia’s commitment, as well as that of New Zealand, has helped us reserve the full dosage of COVID-19 vaccines for every eligible Fijian.

“We’re grateful for the expedited commitment of the Australian and New Zealand governments as we contend with this surge in new local cases. We are also grateful to the Indian Government for their initial contribution of 100,000 COVID-19 vaccines.”
