Must read

A new vaccine against coronavirus will be available soon. We remind you how to sign up for a COVID-19 vaccination. It’s really very easy. You can also do this in a few different ways.

The number of coronavirus infections is constantly growing in our country. Doctors remind that the best way to protect yourself from severe infection is to get vaccinated against COVID-19. The Ministry of Health recently announced that a new coronavirus vaccine will be available for sale on December 6. The drug used for vaccination will be adapted to combat the Kraken variant (XBB). The system automatically issues a referral for vaccination to persons over 12 years of age.

How to sign up for a COVID-19 vaccination?

COVID-19 vaccinations are voluntary and free. People who decide they want to get vaccinated can sign up for one in a few different ways, just choose the one that’s most convenient for them.

  • Call the toll-free hotline – You can study 7 days a week from 7:00 to 20:00. A person who wants to receive such a vaccine can register themselves or someone in their family can do it for them (for example, grandparents or parents). To register you will need to provide your PESEL number. You can also indicate your phone number (this is not necessary) – then the person will receive an SMS confirming the appointment for vaccination. During such registration, the exact location and date of vaccination is selected.
  • Electronically via electronic registration – you can also register through a trusted profile. Once you log in, the system will offer five possible dates for receiving the vaccine. If none of them are suitable or the patient wants to get vaccinated elsewhere, he will also have that option. You should then use the available search engine and then enter the date and location that suits you. After making a reservation, the patient will receive a confirmation in the form of SMS, and a reminder the day before the scheduled vaccination. Also check what to do if you haven’t expanded your trusted profile and have lost access to your online patient account.
  • Direct contact with the vaccination point – the patient can also go directly to the vaccination point where he plans to get vaccinated against COVID-19. This can be done in person or over the phone. A map of vaccination sites is available to help you find the one closest to where you live. If your chosen vaccination site does not have a date convenient for you, call the National Health Fund hotline on 989. This will help you find another vaccination site near your home.
  • Via the MojeIKP mobile application – this application provides access to many functions of the patient’s online account, including the ability to sign up for vaccination against COVID-19. A referral issued for this vaccination will be marked with a blue box in the list of referrals. You should open it, then click the “Get vaccinated” button and select a convenient date and location.

Registration for COVID-19 vaccination via hotline will end soon

Currently, patients can sign up for vaccination through a hotline. However, the Ministry of Health issued a statement that from December 1 it will be impossible to use this registration method for vaccination against COVID-19.

“From December 1, 2023, the hotline for getting vaccinated against COVID-19 will stop working. Patients will be able to sign up for vaccination through the patient’s online account (if the dates in the electronic registration are indicated at the vaccination point), or directly at a primary health care facility or a state pharmacy,” the Ministry of Health said in a statement.
