Polish gov’t to help cover costs of taking disabled for COVID-19 shots

Deputy Interior Minister Paweł Szefernaker said that the government, which has launched a media campaign to encourage Poles to get vaccinated, would reimburse local authorities for 80 percent of the average cost of such transport services.

Central government has calculated that the cost of taking one disabled person for a shot in cities of over 100,000 inhabitants is PLN 75 (around USD 20, EUR 17), and PLN 65 in districts with fewer inhabitants.

Poland plans to spend PLN 3 billion (EUR 675m, USD 820m) on over 60 million doses of coronavirus vaccines under a national inoculation programme.

A 52-year-old Warsaw hospital nurse on December 27 became the first Pole to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

The first batch of 10,000 vaccine doses arrived in the country a day earlier.

In the first quarter of this year, a total of 2.94 million people are expected to be vaccinated for COVID-19 throughout the country.

Frontline healthcare workers are first in line for jabs, followed by pensioners in nursing homes, people over 60, police, soldiers and teachers.

Citizens who are not in priority groups will be able to sign up for COVID-19 shots from January 15, with the first pensioners and teachers expected to be vaccinated 10 days later.
