Twenty-five hospitals nationwide have been selected to vaccinate health-care workers against Covid-19, the government’s coronavirus press centre told MTI on Wednesday.
Budapest’s Honvéd, South-Pest Centrum, Szent János and Szent Imre hospitals, the Korányi Pulmonology Institute and Semmelweis University will serve as vaccination facilities, while in the provinces the central hospitals of each county will serve the purpose.
The hospitals have been selected to allow for timely preparations before the vaccine arrives in Hungary, the press office said.

Mass inoculation will start once the public health authority has approved the vaccines, he said.
