And the Ministry of Health issued, on Monday evening, 245 thousand. Online referrals for a booster dose for adolescents aged 16 to 18, ministry spokesman Wojciech Androsjevic told PAP. Registration will start on Tuesday.

In the second half of May last year, vaccination of adolescents aged 16-17 years began in Poland, and a few weeks later – children aged 12-15 years. “The European Medicines Agency, despite this announcement, has not yet made a recommendation on vaccination with a booster dose for adolescents. It should take place in the coming days, because the EMA meeting continues until January 27,” said a spokesperson for the Ministry of Health.

“However, taking into account the recommendation of the vaccination team of the Minister of Health, and taking into account the position of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the World Health Organization (WHO), we have decided that on January 25, 2022 the booster dose registration process will begin for people vaccinated with two doses from the age of 16 years.
