Under the new regulations, patients hospitalised for at least 14 days, due to an adverse reaction, would be eligible for a compensation of PLN 10,000 (EUR 2,174).
Meanwhile, those hospitalised for more than 120 days would be able to claim a maximum compensation of PLN 100,000.
The decision to pay out the compensation would be made within 60 days by Poland’s Patients' Rights Commissioner.
The proposal still needs to be approved by the country's parliament.
A total of 33,945,590 COVID-19 vaccine shots have been administered in Poland so far, including 97,665 over the last 24 hours, officials announced on Wednesday.
Public health authorities said that 13,686 adverse reactions had been reported among those who received the vaccines by Wednesday morning, including 11,556 mild side effects, such as skin redness and pain at the site of injection.
