Hungary receives first shipment of Russia vaccine
Cecilia Muller noted that Hungarian health authorities had so far granted licences to five vaccines, while the government had made reservations for a total 19.7 million doses.
Hungary is expecting enough vaccines from Russia to inoculate 1 million people, and vaccines from China for another 2.5 million, Muller said. She said that 6.5 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine were expected, adding that Hungary has so far received 500,000 doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines.
Muller stressed that all vaccines provided sufficient protection against the virus, preventing serious symptoms and complications.
