This was an investigation of knowledge, attitudes and practices of Polish physicians working in the childhood immunization programme. It was a survey commissioned within a project funded by Norway Grants. We found that there is quite a bit of hesitancy towards vaccination in this group, especially among younger physicians and those using non scientific sources of information. It was done just before COVID-19 crisis and flagged some gaps in physicians education that have to be addressed ASAP.
