Hungarians can get their Covid jabs without making an appointment at inoculation points on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays in January.
State Secretary István György, who heads the national vaccination working group, said in a video posted on the government’s website that people can get their jabs, registering on site, in the afternoons on Thursdays and Fridays, between 2:00 and 6:00, and all day on Saturdays, between 10:00 in the morning and 6:00 in the evening. Hungary began organizing Covid vaccination drives in late November, which were prolonged until mid-December.
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán earlier this month predicted that the number of people opting for a booster jab against Covid-19 would “skyrocket” under the coming vaccination drives. According to the government website koronavirus.gov.hu, 6,245,773 people in Hungary have received a first jab, 5,957,571 have been fully vaccinated and 3,136,000 people have received a booster shot.
