Piotr Gliński, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Culture, National Heritage and Sport called for vaccination against COVID-19 on Monday. “People will die if we don’t get vaccinated,” he said.
– We have a huge problem with the pandemic, because it has calmed down a bit at the moment, but the fourth wave of the pandemic is on the threshold and will most likely hit Poland within a month. We appeal to everyone to get vaccinated, because vaccination is the only remedy for this situation – Deputy Prime Minister Gliński told journalists after the ceremony of handing over the war losses at the headquarters of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage. He added that “this is the only remedy that will lower this fourth wave hit.”
As he said, “people will die if we don’t get vaccinated.” – It is our duty to talk about it, that everyone gets vaccinated – he stressed.
– We will be asking our Olympians, people who have achieved great success, but are also recognizable, and I think they have a sense of obligation towards our community, to also participate in the information campaign on vaccination. We also invite the media – said Gliński.
