Next Chinese vaccine shipment to arrive in Hungary in mid-March

Hungary is set to take delivery of the next shipment of the Chinese Covid-19 vaccine in mid-March, the government coronavirus information portal said on Tuesday.

A large consignment of Russia’s Sputnik V is soon to arrive in the country, it said.

Hungary has so far ordered 31 million doses of Covid vaccines, 7 percent of which has already been received.

Fully 24 million vaccines come from EU purchases and 5 percent of them including the Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca vaccines has been delivered.

Of Sputnik V and Sinopharm, 13 percent has been delivered, the portal said.

It said that the Janssen and CureVac vaccines are expected to receive a licence by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) in mid-March. Hungary has ordered 4.36 million doses of the single-dose vaccine, Janssen, which is enough to inoculate the same number of people, the portal said.
