The number of vaccines administered in Hungary up to now is 10.7 million (first and second jabs together), which means that the 441 deaths equal 0.039 pc. The data came from the National Public Health Institute (NNK) and covers the period between December 26, 2020, and July 14, 2021.
According to 168.hu, in the case of 4,212 people, adverse reactions followed the inoculation, and 441 people died 30 days after they had got a vaccine. 284 people needed hospital treatment,
while authorities documented mild vaccination reactions in the case of 3,149 people.
Based on the documents, 118 vaccination accidents happened, including errors during the transport, storage, and use of the jabs. This affected 338 people.
According to the institution, these data show that the number of adverse reactions remained negligible in Hungary. Furthermore, the NNK highlighted that,
in many cases, there is no cause-effect connection between the vaccine and the symptoms appearing after its administration.
According to 444.hu, NNK did not say why these people died, but there is natural mortality in each society. Therefore, the 441 people may cover those Hungarians who would have died “anyway”, even if there was no coronavirus at all. We do not even know from the NNK’s data that these people died in a disease caused by the virus. However, if that happens, that still does not mean that the vaccine is ineffective. It only means that they received their first dose, but 30 days later, they still did not develop suitable protection against the virus.
As we reported before, PM Viktor Orbán said in his regular Friday interview on Kossuth Rádió that
the new school year in September would start with inoculating children above 12.
He also said that he did not like the obligatory vaccination of healthcare workers at first. However, the human resources minister, Miklós Kásler, convinced him that in a situation like the current one, it is morally acceptable. Furthermore, the government will draw the attention of the 15 pc elderly people to accept the jab.
