Poland has one of the lowest rates of wasted vaccines in the world, a senior government official has claimed.

According to a government vaccination report, 1,428 doses of Covid-19 vaccines have been discarded.

"This is one of the lowest levels recorded in the EU and in the world," Michal Kuczmierowski, the head of Poland's Material Reserves Agency, told Radio Plus on Tuesday.

"We are worried about every lost vaccine as it means less patients being vaccinated," he added.

Kuczmierowski also said Poland received confirmation of a delivery of 840,000 Moderna vaccines and about 1.2 million Pfizer vaccine doses by the end of January.
