Registration will open at midnight on Friday for all adult Polish citizens who want to get the COVID-19 jab.

“The national vaccination strategy is the largest logistic operation in decades. We are well prepared for it, therefore we encourage everyone to get vaccinated,” emphasised Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, adding that he himself plans to sign up for vaccination the day registration opens. 

While elderly people, teachers, and uniformed services will be vaccinated first, citizens under the age of 60 with chronic illnesses will receive the jab during the second stage. Next in line will be adults who did not qualify for any of the previous stages.

However, the starting dates for vaccination for specific groups are not yet known.

Although the nationwide registration system for vaccinations against COVID-19 did not start until Friday, some vaccination points currently have no available dates for the procedure as the dates could already be booked on Wednesday because these vaccination points had the opportunity to fill in the so-called slots and arrange treatments at a specific date. 

It is possible to register via phone, electronically through e-registration, or at the vaccination points directly. (Monika Mojak | EURACTIV.pl)
