Poland opens COVID-19 vaccination for ages 12 to 15
Registration for vaccine appointments for those aged 12 to 15 opened on Monday and follows a similar go-ahead for the 16-17 age group in the middle of last month.
For now, only Pfizer-BioNTech's Comirnaty vaccine has been cleared for use in those aged 12 and older by the European Medicines Agency.
The other three coronavirus vaccines available in Poland, from Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca and Moderna, are only authorized for adults aged 18 and over.
People can send a text message to sign up for a shot. They can also go online to register or call a 989 vaccination hotline to schedule an appointment. ■
