1. COVID-19 VACCINE
The health and well-being of all Fijians are paramount. The COVID-19 vaccines are critical to protecting all Fijians from the deadly global pandemic. The vaccine is a global effort to fight COVID-19. This is a huge step back to normality for Fiji and its people with hopes that our international borders will open to visitors, restoring the livelihoods for thousands of Fijians, who for eons depended on the tourism sector.
