The Ministry of Health and Medical Services thanks all vaccine-eligible individuals who have stepped forward and received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.  As of 17th November 2021, 600, 140 (97.1%) vaccine eligible individuals have received dose 1 of the COVID-19 vaccine, and 556,322 (90%) individuals have been fully vaccinated with two doses.

In accordance with the Honorable Prime Minister’s speech on 10th October 2021, once 90% of adults are fully vaccinated, the curfew hours will be from midnight to 4 am. This new curfew time is effective from tonight, Thursday 18th November 2021.

Although the achievement of these vaccination milestones results in the easing of restrictions, COVID-19 is still here and we must exercise caution to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our Fiji.

The public is reminded that we must continue to adhere to COVID-19 safe measures of wearing masks appropriately, especially in indoor public spaces, covering our coughs and sneezes, washing our hands regularly with soap and water, or using a hand sanitizer and maintaining a safe physical distancing of 2 meters.
