Within the framework of Vaccination Action Week, Hungarians who wish to get vaccinated can do so this week between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. at hospital vaccination points without having to register or book an appointment. Hospitals across the country are expecting increased vaccination capacity, whether for the first, the missed second or the confirmatory third vaccination.

People who have not been vaccinated can arrive at the vaccination point without pre-registration, in which case they will be registered on the spot. Those who arrive without an appointment will be vaccinated on a first-come, first-served basis. Those who have pre-registered and booked an appointment online can avoid waiting.
