STATISTICS ON VACCINATION AMONG THE COMMUNITY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF SILESIA:

On 4 January we received information from the National Information Processing Institute – National Research Institute on the state of vaccination among students, PhD students, and employees of the University of Silesia as well as other public universities in Poland. The information concerns only students, PhD students, and employees registered in the POL-on system and is based on the data from the Ministry of Health. In the case of the University of Silesia it is 22,458 people, among which at least two doses of COVID-19 vaccine have taken:

  • 77.4% of our students,
  • 85.2% of our PhD students,
  • 91% of our employees.

Full data

Key:

  • the columns “Osoby w pełni zaszczepione” consider people vaccinated twice with double-dose vaccine (and possibly a booster dose) or vaccinated once with a single-dose vaccine (and possibly a booster dose)
  • the columns “Osoby po co najmniej jednej dawce szczepionki” consider people vaccinated once; thus, depending on the type of a vaccine, it can be people fully or not yet fully vaccinated;
  • the columns “Osoby niezaszczepione” consider people not vaccinated;
  • in the case of people who have not registered their PESEL number (using solely the ID card) in the POL-on system, the information on the number of vaccinated may not be complete. Therefore, data of such people have been included in the statement in separate lines.

The National Information Processing Institute – National Research Institute gather and shares current information on Polish science, carries out research on the activity of scientific and research institutes, higher education units, and organising support for technology; the institution also develops IT systems supporting the development of science and higher education, as well as governs the POL-on system.
