Poland will receive a 2.4 million-dose batch of Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccines on Monday, Michal Kuczmierowski, head of the country's Strategic Reserves Agency, has told PAP.
Double supplies of Pfizer vaccines are due to arrive in Poland as of May 31, a government official has said.
The head of the Prime Minister's Office announced on Monday that Johnson & Johnson has reduced its delivery of vaccines to Poland by 450,000 doses, as a consequence, some people will have their vaccination postponed or will be given the option of a different vaccine.
If Poles were allowed to choose their Covid-19 vaccine, 41.7 percent would opt for the Pfizer vaccine, while only 4.8 percent would select the AstraZeneca preparation, a survey by the SW Research pollster has shown.
The gap between the first and second doses of Covid vaccines will be cut to 35 days, the head of Poland's national vaccination programme announced on Monday.
Pfizer will deliver 50 million vaccine doses this year, the CEO of the company’s Polish branch has said.
The current pace of the vaccination process gives Poland a chance to complete the vaccination of all those willing to take a jab in July, the prime minister said on Wednesday.
The shipment of nearly 1.3 million Pfizer vaccines is to be delivered to Poland on Monday, a government official said on Friday.
Pfizer has announced that it will start delivering more doses of its vaccine to EU countries starting from April 26, Mateusz Morawiecki has said.
A total of 50 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine are to reach EU countries by the end of the 2nd quarter, according to the Polish prime minister.
