The situation is still very difficult, so we are keeping the restrictions in place for another week. The exception is hotels – here the restrictions will apply until May 3 inclusive.

COVID-19 vaccines as a chance to overcome the pandemic

Vaccines are a great opportunity to defeat the pandemic. So far, more than 7.7 million injections have been carried out in Polish vaccination centers. More than 2.1 million people have already taken two doses of the vaccine. The second quarter of this year is a significant acceleration. We will be vaccinated faster thanks to the fact that many more vaccines will reach us than before. Each day we begin by recording individual years.

We will run General vaccination pointsto make this process even faster. We hope that the producers will respect their declarations and we will be able to vaccinate all those who wish to be in Poland by the end of the summer holidays. Detailed information on the national immunization program is available on the website gov.pl/szczepimysie – we invite you to visit.

Compliance with safety rules protects our life and health as well as those of our loved ones

In the meantime, we must continue to be very careful until the majority of the population is vaccinated. That’s why we constantly remind you of the basic rules: wear masks, avoid large groups, keep your distance, remember to disinfect your hands, ventilate the room. We also encourage you to download the app Stop Covid – ProteGo Safe.

Decisions related to restrictions depend on the epidemic situation. We must also remember that our behavior not only affects our own health and life, but can also decide the fate of others.
