The deliveries were transferred to the warehouses of the Government Strategic Reserves Agency, from where they will be distributed to vaccination sites across the country.
Later this week, Poland expects to receive about 200,000 doses of a coronavirus vaccine developed by US drug maker Moderna, Michał Kuczmierowski, head of the Government Strategic Reserves Agency, told the media.

The first batch of 10,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses arrived in Poland on December 26.
A day later a 52-year-old Warsaw hospital nurse became the first Pole to be vaccinated against the coronavirus.
As of Monday, almost 4 million COVID-19 vaccine shots had been administered across the country.
The European Union, of which Poland is part, has struck deals to secure vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech, AstraZeneca, Moderna, CureVac, Sanofi-GSK, and Johnson & Johnson.
