PM Orbán: Procuring vaccines quickly is more important than cost

"There’s only one kind of vaccine: the kind which cures people quickly and effectively and to politicize this issue when people’s lives are at stake is irresponsible,” PM Orbán said.

 

At a joint press conference with his Visegrad Group counterparts in Krakow, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said Hungary’s priority regarding coronavirus vaccines was to procure enough safe and effective jabs as quickly as possible, adding that procuring the vaccines quickly was more important than their cost.

The prime minister said the issue should be depoliticized, arguing that although there were “geopolitical disagreements and differences in history and taste” these should not be expressed through a debate on vaccines. “There’s only one kind of vaccine: the kind which cures people quickly and effectively and to politicize this issue when people’s lives are at stake is irresponsible,” PM Orbán said.
