Ex-health minister: 100,000 vaccinations needed each day

An average of at least 100,000 coronavirus vaccinations a day are necessary to bring the pandemic under control, epidemiologist and former health minister Roman Prymula said during a discussion programme on TV Prima. To achieve that goal, more doses must be administered on weekends, he said.

Currently, about 65,000 vaccinations are given on weekdays and a third as many on weekend days. Prymula said an overly complex registration system contributed to a lower number of people getting the jab. Many seniors who registered through their GPs are still waiting to be vaccinated, he said.
