President János Áder has received the first dose of the Chinese Sinopharm vaccine against Covid-19.
According to MTI, the president urged the public to follow suit and register for vaccination as early as possible, and turn up to receive the jab once notified by their GP. “Let us trust our doctors, our health system,” the president said, adding he hoped that “we will soon have the epidemic behind us.”
Meanwhile Miklós Kásler said it is a strategic advantage for Hungary that mass vaccination is now taking place with the products of five manufacturers. The minister added on social media on Friday that viral mutations cause unfavorable epidemiological data and are more contagious, leading to more serious illness. He also noted that an increased level of preparedness will take effect in Hungarian hospitals and strict travel restrictions will also be developed.
