Over 1090 vendors refused entry into markets Over 1090 vendors around the country have been advised not to enter market premises from today as they have not received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Minister for Local Government Premila Kumar said Nausori Market tops the list whereby 746 vendors are not vaccinated.

Kumar said vendors who have not been vaccinated should get their vaccination as soon as possible in order for them to sell in the market.

“As of yesterday, 32 percent of our market vendors were still not vaccinated. In Nausori Market, 746 vendors were not vaccinated out of 1179 vendors,” she said.

“Similarly in Lautoka, 353 vendors were unvaccinated from a total number of 830 vendors and around 40 percent of vendors had not taken their first jab in the Ba and Laqere markets.

“It is imperative to note that the remaining 32 percent or so vendors who have not been vaccinated should get their vaccination as soon as possible in order for them to sell in the market,” she said.

She said every market vendor will be required to present their vaccination card in their respective markets to prove that they have been vaccinated.

“Since experiencing the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, municipal councils implemented a number of safety measures for all Fijians,” she said.

“Councils supported the ministry of health in the awareness programme, decontamination of sites and in the vaccination campaigns.

“Drive-thru sites were set up for vaccination and swabbing making it easier and safer for the people to stay safe within their bubbles,’’ she said.

She said the safety of the markets around all municipalities depends on the staff and the vendors operating in it.

“Vendors are also vulnerable. They come in contact with other Fijians daily from all walks of life and it is imperative they stay protected for the safety of others around them,” she said.

“The council staff will ensure that all coronavirus safe measures are observed by everyone given that the newly-confirmed Delta variant is classed as a dangerous new variant.

“The Government is taking heightened measures to protect Fijians, and communities at large. We cannot be complacent towards this virus as it is a matter of life and death," Kumar added.
