FIJI’S health ministry will conduct training for its team before it rolls out its mass vaccination program for the life-threatening meningcoccal (Men-C) disease outbreak in the country.
The ministry says this will ensure the vaccination team follows proper procedures while vaccinating.
National adviser Family Health Dr Torika Tamani said the training would ensure the finer details of the vaccine would be delivered and how to respond if there was any reaction.
