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

The number of coronavirus infections is constantly increasing in our country. Doctors remind that the best way to protect yourself against severe infection is to take the COVID-19 vaccine.

How to sign up for vaccination against COVID-19?

Vaccinations against COVID-19 are voluntary and free of charge. People who decide that they want to get vaccinated can sign up for such vaccination in several different ways, just choose the one that is most convenient for them.

  • Call the free hotline – you can do it 7 days a week from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. A person who wants to receive such a vaccine can sign up on their own or someone from their family can do it for them (e.g. grandparents or parents can sign up). To register, you must provide your PESEL number. You can also provide your phone number (this is not obligatory) – then the person will receive an SMS confirming the vaccination appointment. During such registration, the exact place and date of vaccination are selected.
  • Electronically via e-Registration – you can also register via Trusted Profile. After logging in, the system will propose five possible dates for receiving the vaccine. If none of them is suitable or the patient wants to be vaccinated at another point, he or she will also have this option. Then you should use the available search engine and then indicate the date and location that is suitable for you. After making the reservation, the patient will receive confirmation in the form of an SMS, and a day before the planned vaccination – a reminder. Also check what to do if you have not extended your Trusted Profile and have lost access to the Online Patient Account.
  • Direct contact with the vaccination point – the patient can also contact directly the vaccination point where he or she plans to be vaccinated against COVID-19. This can be done in person or by phone. A map of vaccination points is available, thanks to which you can find the one closest to your place of residence. If there is no convenient date for you at the selected vaccination point, please contact the National Health Fund hotline at 989. This way, consultants will help you find another vaccination point close to your home.
  • Via the MojeIKP mobile application – this application gives access to many functions of the Online Patient Account, including the possibility of registering for vaccination against COVID-19. A referral issued for this vaccination will be distinguished by a blue border on the referral list. You should open it, then click the “Arrange vaccination” button and select a convenient date and location.

Registration for COVID-19 vaccination via the hotline will soon end

Currently, patients can sign up for vaccination via the hotline. However, the Ministry of Health issued an announcement that from December 1 it will no longer be possible to use this method of registration for vaccination against COVID-19.

“From December 1, 2023, the hotline for registering for vaccination against COVID-19 will cease to operate. Patients will be able to sign up for vaccination via the Online Patient Account (if the vaccination point provides dates in the e-Registration), or directly at a primary health care facility or a public pharmacy,” reads the announcement from the Ministry of Health.
