The Fiji Football Association (Fiji FA) has installed the digital VAX-Check tool to authenticate the vaccination status of its players and officials.
Chief Executive Officer, Mohammed Yusuf, says Fiji FA supports Fijian Government’s initiative in getting everything back to normal.
“We have been and we will always support our government in getting everyone’s life back to normalcy,” said Yusuf.
“We have to follow all the protocols that are implemented by the government so we all can get back to our lives and be safe from the deadly virus.”
Yusuf said they would now be able to verify the vaccination status of the players and officials using the VAX-Check tool.
“We have a No Jab, No Play policy and this tool will really help us getting the correct information and vaccination status of everyone involved in football which will make our work easier,” said Yusuf.
