The inoculation of registered 16-18 year olds will get under way after May 10, while foreigners living in Hungary will be eligible to register from Tuesday, the chief medical officer has said.

Meanwhile, Pfizer-BioNTech has applied to the European Medicines Agency for its vaccine to be accredited for 12-15 year olds, Cecília Müller told a press conference of the operative board responsible for handling the epidemic. As soon as the procedure is completed, Hungary will also expand the scope of the eligible demographics, she said.

Foreigners without social security numbers will also be able to register for the vaccine from Tuesday, Müller said.

Nearly 340,000 doses of Pfizer’s vaccine are due to arrive in Hungary on Tuesday, Müller said, adding that they will be used to reschedule the second jab of teachers supervising the school-leaving exams in high schools, which started this morning.

The one-dose Janssen vaccines will be used on vaccination buses bound for remote localities, she said.

Those wishing to receive their second AstraZeneca jab before the originally designated three-month deadline can request it where they received the first dose, she said.

Thanks to the protection efforts and vaccination, Hungarian pandemic numbers are improving steadily, Müller said. Meanwhile, the trace amounts of the virus in waste water, an indicator of the pandemic’s course over the next period, has slightly grown in the cities of Budapest, Debrecen and Szolnok and edged down in Eger, Pécs, Székesfehérvár, Tatabánya and other cities, she said.

  1. After the ‘whingeing foreigners’ living in Hungary can PROVE their IDENTITY / RESIDENCE / COUNTRY OF BIRTH, they will be vaccinated – in a few weeks’ time.

    In the meantime, these ‘bleaters’ should keep quiet and be very grateful that they are not living in Brazil, India or some other part of the world where such ‘courtesies’ would NEVER be extended to non-citizens such as themselves.

  2. Alfred, yet again you have proven that you are a cabbage head that should get stuffed. Except that in your case it would be a waste of rice and meat. Your total ignorance is astonishing. Part of the rollout for foreigners involves now allowing reputable private facilities such as Swiss Clinic to administer the vaccine. Thus foreigners who usually have an income and assets that you can only dream of and pay far more tax into the Hungarian system in a year than you have done in a lifetime can lay their way yet again. Furthermore, you talk about courtesies; that’s rich coming from the rudest commentator on the site.
