Wojciech Andrusiewicz, the spokesman for the Health Ministry, announced that the government considers whether to expand the group of people to be vaccinated with AstraZeneca products due to the gaps created by people who are resigning from shots against COVID-19 with this company’s product.
He added that a decision in this matter should be made by Monday at the latest.
Yesterday, the European Medicines Agency reported that the vaccine by AstraZeneca had no direct link to any post-vaccination deaths in Europe.
Currently, teachers and medical workers are inoculated with that company’s products. This vaccine will also be administered to people aged 60-69 years.
On Thursday, the director of the European Medicines Agency (EMA), Emer Cooke, announced that AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective, while “the benefits in protecting people from COVID-19 outweigh the risks.”
The head of the Chancellery of the Prime Minister and the government’s plenipotentiary for the National Vaccination Programme Michał Dworczyk, told the Polish Press Agency PAP that the EMA’s position on the AstraZeneca vaccine is another proof that it is not worth being hysterical, but it is worth relying on the facts and recommendations of doctors.
More than a dozen countries, including Germany, France, Italy and Spain, have suspended administration of AstraZeneca in recent days amid concerns that it might cause blood clots. The Italian Prime Minister has already announced the resumption of vaccination with AstraZeneca vaccine.
