Poland predicts return to normal life after vaccination of 15m citizens

Poland’s Health Minister Adam Niedzielski said on Wednesday that the central European nation would return to normal after half of the adult population were vaccinated against coronavirus.

The country has a population of 38 million. Niedzielski said between 50 per cent and 60 per cent needed to be immunised against COVID-19 for Poland to resume life as usual.

“If we limit ourselves to adults, who total more than 30 million, then we will have to vaccinate 15 million people to function as normal,” the minister said.

The optimistic scenario would be for a million medical workers to get shots in January, he added.

The prime minister said his government had paid for 60 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines from six producers.

Vaccines will be administered voluntarily and free of charge starting January 2021.
