The shipment, which was delivered a day ahead of schedule, was transferred to the warehouses of the Government Strategic Reserves Agency, from where it will be distributed to vaccination sites across the country, officials said.
In another shipment this week, Poland expects to receive about 315,000 doses of a coronavirus vaccine developed by US drug maker Moderna, Michał Kuczmierowski, head of the Government Strategic Reserves Agency, told the media.
The delivery is scheduled for Wednesday evening, he added.
On Monday, around 507,000 doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine reached the country.
Next month, some 7 million vaccine doses from several producers are expected to be delivered, roughly as many as during the first three months of the year, according to officials.
Poland on Tuesday announced a plan to step up its inoculation drive amid an expected increase in COVID-19 vaccine supplies.
