COVID-19 Vaccination

April 14th 2021

The Ministry of Health and Medical Services is announcing that, based on the high uptake of COVID-19 vaccine by the public, the current phase of the vaccination campaign is expected to end by Saturday 17th April if not earlier. The target for this phase of the campaign was to vaccinate 50,000 people, and to date 27,705 people in Fiji have received their first dose of the vaccine, with 9,932 people vaccinated on Tuesday 13th April alone.

To find the nearest location where you can get registered and vaccinated, please see the daily update on the Ministry’s Facebook page and in the Fiji Sun newspaper. For those in the Suva area, a week-long COVID-19 vaccination drive is underway at the Vodafone Arena.

To register online please visit vra.digitalfiji.gov.fj and register with your birth registration number or citizenship number, or permit number (if a non-citizen), and a valid photo ID.

For those who have registered in the past and are yet to get vaccinated, you may go to your nearest COVID-19 vaccination site with your registration reference number and valid photo identification to get vaccinated. A valid photo ID may be a Joint FNPF/FRCA card, voter registration card, driver’s license, passport, or a valid student ID.

You can also register at the vaccination sites if you have not been registered yet. Just bring a valid photo ID.

Vaccination is open to all individuals living in Fiji aged 18 and over, but we are especially urging those in the following target groups to get vaccinated:

  • Frontline staff at the borders
  • Healthcare workers (including those in private healthcare)
  • Police and military officers
  • Tourism and hotel workers
  • Civil servants
  • People over the age of 60
  • People with medical conditions that increase the risk of severe disease if they do get infected with COVID-19. You will fall into this category if you are currently attending a Special Outpatients Department (SOPD) clinic with the Ministry of Health and Medical Services, or similar with a private healthcare provider. This includes those with diabetes, asthma, and heart conditions.
