As the country continues to battle with the daily surge in COVID-19 cases, Fiji Red Cross remains at the frontline assisting the Ministry of Health and Medical Services.

More than 100 Fiji Red Cross volunteers are part of the national vaccination effort, working alongside health workers, registering people in vaccine centres, assisting with data entry and providing information about the vaccines.

Over seventy-five percent of Fiji Red Cross volunteers are youths.

Fiji Red Cross Society Director-General, Ilisapeci Rokotunidau says their volunteers have been working closely with the Ministry of Health frontline workers to register individuals for vaccination.

She says volunteer training has been comprehensive and covers information about the virus, vaccination and procedures on how volunteers can keep themselves and the public safe while working at vaccination sites.

Rokotunidau says volunteers are also actively engaging with their communities and assisting with providing relevant and factual information with regards to the virus and the vaccine so that individuals are able to make well-informed decisions.
