Some 15 million Poles need to be vaccinated to achieve a "population immunity effect," the minister of health said on Tuesday.
Poland has organised vaccination points that will be able to vaccinate up to 98.5 percent of the population against Covid-19, the health minister said on Wednesday.
If a decision on permitting coronavirus vaccinations is taken before Christmas then just after the holidays the first batch of 10,000 doses may appear in Poland and the health authorities are ready to distribute them, the health minister said on Thursday.
The Polish health minister has said that he will recommend that the current coronavirus-related restrictions, especially those regarding school winter holidays, should remain in force until at least January 17, 2021, to avoid a third Covid-19 wave.
Next year will be a year of vaccinations against the coronavirus, the Polish health minister has said, adding that if population resistance is achieved by the end of 2021, it will be possible to say a certain level of success has been reached.
Poland's health minister has said people who take the Covid-19 vaccination will be exempt from quarantine and travel bans to high-risk countries, and will also be free of limits on public gatherings.
Coronavirus restrictions will remain in place till December 27, the health minister said on Friday.
The prime minister wants the vast majority of Poles vaccinated against Covid-19, Adam Niedzielski, the health minister, said on Wednesday.
Mateusz Morawiecki, the prime minister, said that Poland had signed contracts for 45 million doses of a Covid-19 vaccine, which would be made available free of charge on a voluntary basis from February 2021.
The first supplies of Covid-19 vaccines are expected to arrive in Poland in late January or early February, the health minister said on Wednesday.
