87%  of footballers jabbed says Fiji FA

The Fiji Football Association has revealed that 87percent of footballers have received their first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

Fiji FA chief executive Mohammed Yusuf said their target is to reach 100 per cent by the end of this month.

Yusuf also encouraged players who have been dated to receive their second dose, to get jabbed again so that football activities resume soon.

He said that once the footballers and districts are fully vaccinated, then football will resume behind closed doors so that everyone is protected from the virus.

He also mentioned that once the players are vaccinated, they will also protect the other players from contracting the virus.

He said although football is afoot game, yet they don’t want to take any risk when the competitions resume.
