The method of organizing preventive vaccinations in Poland is regulated by the Act on preventing and combating infections and infectious diseases in humans of 2008 (as amended). The provisions of the Act include compulsory vaccinations (reimbursed by the state, financed from public funds) and recommended vaccinations, which can be financed on your own.

The vaccination program is announced by the Chief Sanitary Inspectorate. The current document was issued on October 28, 2012 and is valid for 2013.

Free smallpox vaccination for children under 3 years

In 2013, the previously binding provision (which entered into force on October 1, 2011) was maintained, thanks to which children attending nurseries and children's clubs up to 3 years old can benefit from free vaccination against smallpox. Children who are looked after by a nanny or other guardian outside the care institution are not eligible for free vaccination. Free vaccination will also not benefit children attending kindergartens (i.e. children who, according to the Act, are covered by pre-school education in the calendar year in which the child turns 3).

To take advantage of the free vaccination against smallpox, it is sufficient to provide a certificate that the child goes to a nursery or toddler club, issued by the institution where the child attends.

Vaccine for premature babies: an important change

In 2013, one important change was introduced. It concerns a vaccine that protects against pneumococcal diseases (e.g. pneumonia). According to the new regulations, it will be free and compulsory for all premature babies born before 37 weeks of gestation and those with birth weight below 2500 g. Vaccine is still recommended for healthy babies born on time, but not refundable, which means that they should be paid extra pay.
