Fiji Health Ministry trains staff for corona vaccination

 Many countries have started a vaccination drive against coronavirus. Fiji, the Island nation which recorded d 53 cases in total with two deaths so far, is also all set to start the vaccination drive to protect countrymen from the virus. Fiji's health ministry is prepared to securely handle the corona vaccine from its procurement to the vaccination process and is training staff to administer it.

According to Fiji Broadcasting Corporation (FBC), Fiji's Minister for Health Ifereimi Waqainabete informed that the training of the staff carrying out the ground work is completed. Waqainabete said they will begin the registration process to ensure the right people get vaccinated, which will also help the health ministry track Fijians intending to travel overseas. He said, "If that person decides to go overseas after the vaccination program, then we can say you have the right person coming."

Waqainabete said the corona vaccination will come in batches, therefore the ministry will categorize the priority groups. Fiji is working to register all receivers planned for the first phase of vaccination. Fiji's Permanent Secretary for the Health Ministry James Fong said earlier that frontline workers and people aged 60 years and above will get vaccinated first.
