Ministerial commissioner István Grezsa has handed over a contingent of 22,500 vaccines to the local chapter of the Red Cross in Chop (Csap), in Ukraine’s Transcarpathia region.
According to MTI, the vaccines, against diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, influenza and poliomyelitis, have been donated as part of a 5-year Hungarian assistance program. Grezsa said that in the past three years, Hungary has sent 80,000 vaccines to Transcarpathia.
