Poland will extend the interval between the first and second doses of COVID-19 vaccines, an official said on Thursday as his country seeks to speed up inoculations amid an accelerating epidemic.

In another measure as Poland races to contain the virus, people who have been infected will receive a single shot six months after they tested positive.

From next week, the second dose of AstraZeneca vaccines will be administered 12 weeks after the first injection, said Michał Dworczyk, the man spearheading the country’s inoculation drive.

Meanwhile, Pfizer vaccines will be administered in two doses 42 days apart, added Dworczyk, who is the prime minister's top aide.

"Everything will be in accordance with manufacturers’ recommendations,” he told reporters.

‘No detriment’

“The current research results show that this type of operation can be performed without any detriment to the effectiveness of the vaccines,” Dworczyk added.

On Thursday, exactly a year after its first COVID-19 case was confirmed, Poland reported 15,250 new coronavirus infections and 289 more deaths.

That brought its total number of cases during the pandemic to 1,750,659 and fatalities to 44,649.

The European Union, of which Poland is part, has struck deals to secure vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech, AstraZenecaModernaCureVacSanofi-GSK, and Johnson & Johnson.

Polish biotechnology firm Mabion has sealed an agreement with US drug maker Novavax to produce a COVID-19 vaccine, officials announced on Wednesday.
