Pest County's government commissioner has confirmed that close to 60 percent of social care home residents in the county have received a Covid-19 booster shot so far, with more residents set to receive a third jab over the coming period.
Richárd Tarnai said Hungarians who are four months past their second Covid jab can get a booster shot from August 1. He added that so far almost all care home residents and staff in the county have indicated that they intend to get the booster. “I encourage everyone to get the third dose, because the virus is likely to spread faster in the autumn,” he said. So far some 52,000 Hungarians have received a Covid-19 booster shot and some 64,000 have registered for one.
