Fijians are thankful that another location has been provided for them to get their COVID-19 vaccine booster shots in Suva.

Many people took the opportunity to take their families to Civic Centre in Suva to get their booster jabs.

Vaccination centre opens from 9am-3pm.

Makereta Kotoisuva, 26, said she was on her way to Albert Park when she saw people going to Civic Centre.

“I am planning to go to my village in Lakeba, but was informed that I needed to take the booster shot. I have taken both my vaccination and I am glad to get my booster shot,” Ms Kotoisuva said.

“I was walking with a cousin of mine to Albert Park to get our booster shot. It was quite far and then we saw people sitting at Civic Centre and my cousin said she heard that Civic Centre was open for vaccination.

“We asked those that were here, and I was told that we could get our booster shots here. I am glad that the Ministry of Health has opened the Civic Centre so people don’t have to go as far as Albert Park.”

Shayal Sargini, 30, said everyone should be looking forward to getting their third jabs.

“Getting my booster shot at Civic Centre was fast and that is good. My husband also got his booster shot and we are glad to be protected,” Ms Sargini said.

“We are glad to take the booster shot because we have a toddler who we need to protect at all times.

“Albert Park is a good location for drive through only, since it is a bit too far for people who have to walk.

Her husband, Ravin Prasad said he was glad that the Government has imposed the $250 fines for those seen not wearing masks.

“Despite the increase of COVID-cases, people still don’t wear masks or just don’t wear them properly. Some hold it in their hands and when they see Police officers then they wear it,” Mr Prasad said.

“This is not fair for those that are following COVID-safe protocols. Let’s work together and help the Ministry of Health fight COVID.”.
