First doses of vaccines expected in late December

The first dozes of coronavirus vaccines are expected to arrive in the last days of December, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said in his address in parliament on Monday.

Hungary’s operative board coordinating response to the epidemic has prepared a national vaccination action plan, Orban said, noting that vaccination will be voluntary and available free of charge.

In the first phase, frontline health-care staff will be inoculated, followed by patients with chronic illnesses, he said.

“Every life matters; we have concluded a contract with every serious vaccine producer,” the prime minister said.

Current coronavirus regulations must, however, be maintained until vaccinations can begin, he said.
