93,000 people have received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccines.
Permanent Secretary for Health, Doctor James Fong says the COVID-safe habits are the best defence we have.
He says from today, and through the coming weeks and months, more Fijians will have the opportunity to protect themselves through vaccines.
They have administered more than 24,000 doses from the latest COVAX shipment of vaccines.
Another 21,600 doses were received from COVAX last night.
Also, 10,000 doses arrived in Fiji last night from Australia, the first of many monthly installments.
Doctor Fong this month, they will start administering the second doses of vaccines in line with the proper dosage timeline for 6,000 of the frontliners, making them the first fully vaccinated Fijians.
In the interest of protecting everyone, they will have details to announce about the next deployment schedule of vaccines today.
