Public health authorities said that the daily number of COVID-19 vaccinations across the country totaled 236,031 and that 17,139 adverse reactions had been reported among those who received the jabs by Thursday morning.

Meanwhile, a total of 743,048 doses have been wasted in the rollout, according to the Polish health ministry.

As of Thursday, Poland, a country of around 38 million, had injected around 21.95 million first doses of COVID-19 vaccines, while more than 21.37 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.

The European Commission last month granted conditional marketing approval to the Nuvaxovid COVID‑19 vaccine developed by Novavax, the fifth COVID-19 vaccine authorised for use in adults across the European Union.

Poland on Thursday reported 16,878 new coronavirus infections and 481 more deaths related to COVID-19, bringing the country's total number of cases during the pandemic to 4,265,433 and fatalities to 101,419.

The country last month launched a COVID-19 vaccination drive for children between the ages of five and 11.

At the start of November, third doses of the COVID-19 vaccine were made available to all adults across the nation.

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

By Thursday, a total of 8,005,749 booster shots had been administered, government data showed.
