One million vaccines from Poland for Australia

 One million doses of the vaccine against COVID-19 by Pfizer were sold to Australia, which is fighting the pandemic. Australian authorities thank you for your support. 

- For Australia, plunged in lockdowns, it is a great help - and the main news on TV - wrote on Twitter the Polish ambassador in Canberra, Michał Kołodziejski.

The vaccines will go primarily to the state of New South Wales. 

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison explained that 530,000. The doses from the new delivery from Poland will be given to people aged 20 to 39 because this age group accounts for the majority of new cases of infection.

The remaining doses are to be distributed to other Australian states and territories.

The Australian side gratefully accepted the support shown by Poland. Prime Minister Morrison thanked the head of the Polish government, Mateusz Morawiecki, for this.

- The purchases we have made allow us to meet the needs of our citizens and support others in need. It is a responsible and solidarity policy - wrote on Twitter Polish Minister of Health, Adam Niedzielski.
