WESTERN Province’s COVID-19 vaccination team is heading to Rendova to carry out vaccination this week.
In an interview with Island Sun Gizo, Director of Western Province, Health and Medication Authority Dickson Boara said sites have been identified for people to get their vaccination.
He adds that those eligible for the vaccine will get the jab.
Boara said vaccination programme in other parts of Western Province are still ongoing.
He said Western Province’s vaccination teams have dispatched to Marovo, Noro, Vona Vona Lagoon and now at Rendova.
Boara also said, vaccination centre at Gizo is still open for public to get their jab.
He said vaccination rollout programme in Western Province has been successful with few challenges.
Boara reiterates his call on the public to get their jab as soon as possible.
“We are racing behind time and it is important that we must get the vaccine. Note, that the government is likely to open the border when we reach the expected percentage people getting the vaccine and this is why it is important for you to get vaccinated to protect yourself and your families,” he said.
