The Head of the Burebasaga Confederacy, Na Marama Bale Na Roko Tui Dreketi, Ro Teimumu Kepa is pleading with people who are above 18 years to get vaccinated for COVID if they love their family members, as a concerning number of Fijians are dying from this deadly virus.

In a video message to all the leaders of the different provinces that come under the Burebasaga Confederacy, Ro Teimumu says this is the only way that Fiji can conquer the spread of COVID-19.

She says there are a lot of people who are preaching for others not to get vaccinated, but we should just look at the number of people who are dying now to make the right decision.

Ro Teimumu says so far those that have died due to COVID-19 have either not been vaccinated or have just received their first jab.

She says it is the right of an individual whether to get vaccinated or not, but from her end as the Head of the Burebasaga Confederacy, she is pleading to all of those who are 18 years and above to get vaccinated.

Ro Teimumu says she has heard that most of the people who are dying of COVID are the iTaukei and this is very concerning.

She says no one knows how long COVID will be amongst us but we should all do the right thing.

Ro Teimumu says we should make sure that all our family members who are eligible to get vaccinated do so.

She says we should also think of our work colleagues when making the decision on whether or not to get vaccinated.
