Adam Niedzielski in an interview with Jacek Prusinowski indicated that his ministry, like the entire government, would try to encourage Poles to vaccinate against Covid-19. He stressed that still too few people have decided to vaccinate with the fourth dose and that it is necessary to intensify activities promoting vaccination.
“It is better to get vaccinated than to play roulette, whether the virus hits me or not” – said the head of the health ministry in “The Heart of the Case”. At the same time, Niedzielski noted that we still have many cases of coronavirus infections.

Changes in the functioning of GPs
Adam Niedzielski reminded that for some time the limits of patients to specialist doctors have been lifted. Unfortunately, the number of specialists and their capabilities are limited, so the Ministry of Health decided that Primary Healthcare physicians could conduct more examinations.
Niedzielski noted that, of course, it will not be the case that every family doctor it will be possible to afford to carry out all these tests, because the limitation is the infrastructure of a given POZ facility.
It was also decided to introduce consultations of family doctors with specialist doctors, which will take place even during a visit to a health care clinic.
What do you think of the proposed changes?
