Coronavirus – Four vaccines are now given

Vaccination with the Russian Sputnik V vaccine begins in Budapest, so eThey have been vaccinated with four vaccines from this week onwards.

Müller Cecília said 560 GPs in the capital are being asked to select five people in their practice to receive the Sputnik V vaccine at vaccination points. 2800 doses of the vaccine are now available and can be given to those without chronic illness.

He reminded me that “we don’t have a huge amount” of this vaccine. Back in December, six thousand doses of Sputnik V were received, of which the amount that can now be administered was released after laboratory tests.

There are enough of this vaccine to vaccinate another twenty thousand people in the country, but laboratory testing of these batches is still ongoing.

This week they can be used not only at vaccination points, but also by GPs with the Pfizer vaccine, of which 85,410 doses arrive in Hungary on Tuesday, and one ampoule is enough to vaccinate 5-6 people. The list of registered vaccinees will be given to the doctors again and vaccinations of the oldest will have to be arranged in the office.

Müller Cecília He also said that GPs would start vaccinating people with chronic illness between the ages of 18 and 60 with AstraZeneca. 2040 GPs will receive one ampoule of this vaccine, which will allow ten to ten people to be vaccinated. Another shipment of this vaccine is expected on Thursday.

AstraZeneca also starts vaccinating the elderly, but here there is also an emphasis on chronic health, as younger people also live with chronic illness, he said. This included people with cardiovascular, lung, kidney disease, cancer and diabetes, or organ transplants. In each case, it is up to the GP to decide who was first vaccinated with this vaccine, he said. Müller Cecília.

He indicated that 21,600 doses of the Moderna vaccine will also arrive on Thursday. 291,396 people have been vaccinated so far, and 110,395 have already received a second dose of one of the vaccines.

Müller Cecília warned everyone to pay close attention because, although epidemiological data show an improving trend, the “positivity rate” of the tests performed is increasing. There is also an increase in the number of people cared for in hospital and those in need of a ventilator: 3792 people are treated in hospital for coronavirus complications, 304 of whom are on a ventilator. The data show that in the downward phase of the second wave of the epidemic, there is a stagnation and in many places the amount of virus hereditary material in wastewater is stagnating or rising.

“This is a matter of some concern”He said Müller Cecília. Eso far, the British variant of the virus has been detected in 24 samples, and the Brazilian and South African mutants have not yet been found at home.
