Public health authorities said that 16,422 adverse reactions had been reported among those who received the vaccines by Tuesday morning.

Meanwhile, a total of 679,334 doses have been wasted in the rollout, according to the Polish health ministry.

As of Tuesday, Poland, a country of around 38 million, had injected over 21 million first doses of COVID-19 vaccines, while more than 20.56 million people had been fully inoculated, health ministry data showed.

The tally includes two-dose vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca as well as Johnson & Johnson's one-shot vaccine.

Poland on Tuesday reported 19,366 new coronavirus infections and 504 more deaths related to COVID-19, bringing the country's total number of cases during the pandemic to 3,704,040 and fatalities to 86,205.

At the start of last month, third doses of the COVID-19 vaccine were made available to all adults in the country.

The booster shot is administered at least six months after full vaccination, using Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna mRNA vaccines.

For people aged over 50, the minimum recommended interval is five months, under rules recently announced by public health authorities.

By Tuesday, a total of 3,717,520 booster shots had been administered, government data showed.

Health Minister Adam Niedzielski on Tuesday announced that Poland would introduce compulsory COVID-19 vaccinations for healthcare workers, teachers and law enforcement personnel from March 1.

More than 43 percent of Poles are in favor of a plan to introduce compulsory vaccination against COVID-19 in their country, a new survey has found.

Meanwhile, around 41 percent of those polled opposed such a step, and 15.7 percent were undecided.
