Hungary’s drug and health authorities received on Friday morning Chinese vaccine documentation, Péter Szijjártó, the minister of foreign affairs and trade, said on Facebook.

The vaccine’s safety is a matter for experts, not a political or ideological issue, he said. If the relevant authorities give the go-ahead, a contract for the import of the vaccine will be concluded swiftly, Szijjártó added.
The Hungarian government is committed to providing voluntary and free vaccination against the coronavirus, swiftly and in an organised fashion, the Head of the Prime Minister’s Office told a regular press briefing on Thursday.
Gergely Gulyás called on all wishing to avail themselves of the vaccine to register at vakcinainfo.gov.hu. Registration forms will also be delivered by post from Friday, he said. Gulyás said it was too early to tell whether the epidemic had peaked in Hungary.
