From today, referrals for vaccination against COVID-19 for teenagers +12

Starting Monday, June 7, online referrals for the COVID-19 vaccination will be issued to people aged 12 to 15. Vaccinations will be carried out in the coming weeks in vaccination centers, and from September also in schools.

Adolescents between the ages of 12 and 15 can get the COVID-19 vaccination on the same terms as all citizens, as part of the national immunization programme, that is, at population vaccination centers and public vaccination centers.

Referral for vaccination. How do you register?

Youth 12+ can register for immunizations from Monday 7 June by:

  • Free National Immunization Program Helpline: By calling 989,
  • By contacting the specified vaccination point by sending an SMS to 664908556 or 880333333 with the following text: SzczepimySie,
  • Through the electronic registration available on the patient’s home page.

You must complete a screening interview questionnaire to qualify for vaccination. The questionnaire is the basis for the health care professional to decide whether a person can be vaccinated on that day. It is completed by the person who has been vaccinated with the legal guardian or parent who must sign it.

Vaccinate people aged 12-15 years. Which vaccine?

Children between 12 and 15 years old will only be vaccinated with Pfizer products.

A request to extend the use of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine against COVID-19 for children aged 12-15 years was approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) at the end of May. The Prime Minister’s Medical Council has also recommended vaccination in this age group. The head of the Prime Minister’s Chancellery, Michaël Dorzyk, announced on Tuesday that research on the acceptance of vaccinations for children aged 7 to 12 is continuing.
