Hungary to begin vaccinating key workers against coronavirus

The CMO said the next category to be inoculated will be people working in key sectors, including electricity distribution companies and public transport.

 

Chief Medical Officer Cecília Müller said Hungary will begin vaccinating its critical infrastructure workers against the coronavirus.

According to MTI, Müller said the next category to be inoculated will be people working in key sectors, including electricity distribution companies and public transport. 

The CMO added that with the virus spreading even more rapidly than before, the operative board and the national vaccination working group have decided to expand Hungary’s vaccination program to cover the employees of Budapest transport authority BKK, the Paks nuclear power plant in central Hungary, state-owned energy company MVM and railway companies MÁV and GYSEV.

“We must expand the circle of vaccine recipients while continuing to inoculate those over the age of 65 at vaccination points and general practitioners’ clinics,” she insisted. The chief medical officer also said that while Hungary was making good progress with its vaccination program, it still did not have access to a sufficient amount of vaccines.
