Fiji’s national vaccination drive has reached another milestone, with 60 per cent of its eligible population now fully vaccinated.
This vaccination achievement means Fijian locals will be able to enjoy domestic getaways from October 4 and sets the path to an eventual reopening for international travellers.
Many tourism operators have been integral in supporting the vaccination roll-out, with over 100 properties now having fully vaccinated teams.
“We also acknowledge the very proactive support of tourism operators in assisting frontliners, the Ministry of Health and Medical Services in vaccinating people in urban, rural and maritime areas,” said Brent Hill, CEO Tourism Fiji.
“These collective efforts have boosted Fiji’s vaccination coverage and steered us closer to also reopening for international visitors and reviving our industry.
“Our vaccination drive has always been the pathway back to tourism in the country, so it is a welcoming milestone achievement to have collectively reached. We should all be proud of this drive towards reopening.”
