The Ministry of Health and Medical Services will be rolling out the next phase of COVID-19 vaccinations with approximately 50,000 people eligible to receive the 2-dose vaccine from this Tuesday.
This group includes the rest of the front-line staff at the borders, all healthcare workers (including those in private healthcare), police and military officers, tourism and hotel workers, and civil servants.
According to a government statement, those over the age of 60, and people with medical conditions that increase the risk of severe disease if they do get infected with COVID-19 will also be eligible to get the vaccines.
You will fall into this category if you are currently attending a Special Outpatients Department clinic with the Ministry of Health and Medical Services, or similar with a private healthcare provider.
This includes people with diabetes, asthma, and heart conditions.
Government says a list of locations where these people can get vaccinated will be released at a later date.
However, Fijians over the age of 18, and especially people eligible for this second phase have been urged to register for the COVID-19 vaccine now.
To register, you can visit vra.digitalfiji.gov.fj or your nearest health centre with your birth registration or citizenship number and photo ID.
The birth registration number is printed on your birth certificate. If you do not have your birth certificate you can get your BRN free of charge from any Birth, Deaths, and Marriage (BDM) Registry or your nearest health centre.
