So far 4,288,641 people have received a first jab, while 2,488,118 have been fully vaccinated. Altogether 4.8 million people have registered for vaccines and 80% of them have already received at least one jab.
The number of active infections has declined to 194,778, while hospitals are treating 3,353 Covid patients, 403 of whom need respiratory assistance.
There are 21,975 people in official quarantine, while around 5,528,240 tests have been officially carried out.
Since the first outbreak, 791,709 infections have been registered, while fatalities have risen to 28,602. Fully 568,329 people have made a recovery.
So far, most infections have been registered in Budapest and Pest County, followed by the counties of Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén, Győr-Moson-Sopron and Hajdú-Bihar.
People in those groups can register at www.vakcinainfo.gov.hu, the centre said.
It added that vaccination would start in the second half of May with foreign residents in Hungary, with Hungarian nationals living in other countries to follow.
Hungary is among the first countries in the European Union to administer vaccines for this age group and the initial registrations have been successful. Over 84,000 people registered for the vaccination next week.
Those people between 16-18 who registered after Friday (May 7th midnight) will receive the jab, but they are queued with everyone else.
