Michał Dworczyk, the Polish prime minister's top aide, told reporters that officials were expecting a recommendation from medical advisors soon.

But he added: “It is obvious that seniors will not be inoculated with this vaccine.”

Europe's medicines regulator on Friday approved AstraZeneca and Oxford University's vaccine for people over the age of 18, the third vaccine to be cleared for use in the European Union.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) said there were not yet enough results for people over the age of 55 to determine how well the vaccine would work for this group.

The head of Poland’s Material Reserves Agency, Michał Kuczmierowski, said on Monday that the first delivery of the AstraZeneca vaccine, comprising some 230,000 doses, was expected around February 9.

Poland on Monday reported 2,503 new coronavirus infections and 42 more deaths, bringing its total number of cases during the pandemic to 1,515,889 and fatalities to 37,222.

Poland began administering COVID-19 vaccines to citizens over 70 last week.

Citizens over 80 have been able to sign up for COVID-19 shots since January 15. On January 22, registration opened to those in the 70+ age group.
