The Ministerial Director of Seventh Day Adventist Church in Fiji Reverend Aisake Kabu says they are encouraging and preaching for people to get vaccinated and the leaders of the church have taken a leading role in getting vaccinated themselves.

Speaking on the Bula Ko Lau Discussion Forum in the iTaukei language, Reverend Kabu says they have taken it upon themselves to get vaccinated so that they are role models and are not just seen as preaching without practicing.

He says they believe God has blessed some people who have become doctors who also have the knowledge in dealing with different types of diseases and viruses.

Reverend Kabu says they are not against the vaccines and they approve of the vaccine for the people in the church to be vaccinated.

He says they also respect the decision of an individual if they do not want to get vaccinated as it is their right but they are stressing that the health of an individual is their own choice and if they want to live a longer and healthier life, they should do the right thing and get vaccinated.
