Hungary is the first country in Europe where enough vaccine is available for everyone who asks for it, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said on Tuesday.

“This is a great achievement, and it would not have been possible without Pfizer’s supplies,” Szijjártó said after talks with Pfizer’s Hungarian director.

Hungary has signed up for 10.8 million doses of Pfizer vaccine, and the 20th shipment of 334,000 doses is scheduled to arrive on Tuesday, he said. As a result,

Hungary will have received a total of 2.8 million doses of Pfizer vaccine, the largest amount of vaccine received from any vaccine manufacturer, he added.

Szijjártó said that thanks to these supplies and “the fact that Hungary does not consider vaccine procurement to be an ideological issue”, having purchased vaccines from both “the Eastern and the Western points of the compass”, the country is the first where the vaccine market of is turning from supply-driven to demand-driven, he said.

It is also planned that Pfizer will play a big role in the vaccination of young people, Szijjártó said.

He noted that he had paid a visit to the company’s Hungarian office as a sign of respect and to thank its employees. Since December 26, 2020, they have all been working extremely hard to ensure the supply of large amounts of vaccines to Hungary, he added.

Sufficient reserves are now being accumulated in order to be able to inoculate people aged between 16 and 18, and the vaccination of under 16s could follow depending on the advice of medical experts, he said.

  1. I’m very glad to see that Mr Szijjarto actually promoted a western vaccine. It made quite a refreshing read in fact. Keep it up.

  2. To those individuals who don’t have the mental ability to submit comments except under that ‘garbage-bag’ title of “ANONYMOUS” :

    It is an established fact that Hungary would have used Pfizer vaccines (and possibly one manufactured by Moderna) if the entire ORDERING / DISTRIBUTION process had not been so disgracefully ‘stuffed up’ by those acerebral bureaucrats in Brussels – following instructions from their SOCIALIST / COMMUNIST / STALINIST pseudo-politician ‘minders’ – in the name of ‘European equality and togetherness’.

    Most European Commission / Parliament members seem to have an uncontrollable urge to hold hands and sing ‘KUMBAYA’ whilst the entire (European) project is suffering the same fate as ‘S.M.S. TITANIC’.

    Thank goodness Prime Minister Viktor Orban does not have the time for such foolish campfire antics.

  3. And AlfredE.Neuman is your real name is it ….?
    Condemnant quo non intellegunt.
    I’m sure your blood pressure is through the roof.
    Anyway, it has been remarked upon more than once that your comments always make an amusing read!

  4. Hungary as far as I know never criticised western vaccines.
    As we all know unfortunately, there weren’t enough of them.
