According to Hungarian media reports, on January 14th local time, the Minister of the Hungarian Prime Minister’s Office, Guáš Gelgay, revealed that Hungary has signed a contract to purchase the coronavirus vaccine of the Chinese National Pharmaceutical Group, and the first batch of vaccine delivery reached 1 million doses.
Gelgay said at a press conference on the same day that the supply of vaccines allocated to Hungary by the European Union vaccine project was too slow, with less than 100,000 doses a week.
Hungary will continue negotiations with China and Russia on the purchase of additional vaccines.
Guergay revealed that Hungary has essentially reached an agreement with the Chinese National Pharmaceutical Group to deliver up to 1 million doses of vaccines in the first place. The delivery time of vaccines in China depends on the approval speed of the relevant Hungarian departments.
Guergay also said Hungary has received a total of 129,860 doses of Pfizer and Modena coronavirus vaccine, vaccinated more than 96,000 people.
