Long lines formed after the government decided to use the national holiday weekend to set up temporary vaccination sites in Poland’s 16 main cities to speed up the inoculation campaign.

Due to huge demand, some of the mobile vaccination units ran out of vaccines on Saturday, prompting officials to promise additional supplies.

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has said there is a chance that all Poles who want to be inoculated against COVID-19 will receive shots by the end of July.

"Today we have more and more vaccines," Morawiecki told reporters at the end of last month. "We want to be able to administer these vaccines through an ever-increasing number of channels."

Poland on Saturday reported 6,469 new coronavirus infections and 423 more deaths, bringing the country's total number of cases during the pandemic to 2,798,617 and fatalities to 67,924.
