In accordance with the Health and Safety at Work (General Workplace Conditions) (Amendment) Regulations 2021, Part 14 A –COVID Vaccination, mandates employers and employees are to be responsible for ensuring only vaccinated staff, with at least one vaccination by 1st August, are allowed access to the workplace.
With immediate effect, essential USP staff at Fiji Campuses will need to show their vaccination card showing at least their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to enter Campus premises. If you have not received your second dose, you will be required to receive this eight weeks after the first vaccination and be within the stated timeframe of receiving both doses by 1st November, as stated in the Regulations.
We continue to support the work of the Fijian Government and the respective Ministries in fighting the current COVD-19 outbreak by maintaining the COVI-19 protocols and limiting access to and from Campus to protect our residential community.
The welfare of our staff and students is our primary concern, and following on from our previous DISMAC notification, where we explained the options open to you, we recommend that you support the Fijian Governments’ National Vaccination Campaign and register for the COVID vaccination at https://vra.digitalfiji.gov.fj and take both courses of the vaccine.
You can contact the Executive Director, People and Workforce Strategy, Mr. Jone Nemani, on email Jone.Nemani@usp.ac.fj for further information.
