The foreign minister has revealed that Hungary has agreed to donate 40,000 vaccines to the Czech Republic in the first half of May.
Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said that Hungary would have enough vaccines for everyone by then. “The Czech Republic is [among other countries] in a tough situation due to the European Commission’s defective vaccine procurements,” Minister Szijjártó said on Facebook.
The minister added that thanks to the government’s timely procurement of large quantities of Eastern vaccines in addition to European Union procurements, “we are at the forefront of vaccinations” per capita in the bloc.
