The data include answers of 706 university students from Poland to demographic questions, mental and physical health, and well-being. The cross-sectional online survey was performed during the fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, including measures of Exposure to Coronavirus (8 questions), Spirituality (2 questions), Physical Health (GSRH, 2-item), Perceived Stress (PSS-10), PTSD (Short PCL-6), anxiety (GAD-7), depression (PHQ-9), Life Satisfaction (SWLS), and Fear of COVID-19 (FoCV-19S). Differences between vaccinated and unvaccinated samples were investigated in the study using Pearson's Chi-square independence test, Student's t-test, and Mann-Whitney U-test. Also, network analysis was performed for unvaccinated and vaccinated university students, including selected demographic variables (age, gender, relationship status) and well-being dimensions. Overall, unvaccinated students showed better health and well-being than unvaccinated.
