Poland Reports A Significant Increase in People Wanting Astrazeneca’s Vaccine

WARSAW, Poland — Poland’s prime minster said Monday that the government is seeing a significant increase in people wanting Astrazeneca's coronavirus vaccine.

“I received a report that there are far more people willing to be vaccinated with AstraZeneca,” Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said during a visit to a new temporary COVID-19 hospital in Radom. “This is very good news.”

Poland has been ramping up pandemic restrictions in recent weeks amid a dramatic spike in the number of new coronavirus infections.

Last week, many Poles canceled or didn't show up for appointments to receive the AstraZeneca shot amid reports of rare blood clots. On Thursday, the European Medicines Agency said the vaccine doesn't increase the overall incidence of blood clots, though it couldn't rule out a link to a small number of rare clots.
