COVID – The vaccination plan does not change in Hungary

Despite the fact that fewer vaccines are expected to arrive in Hungary, the national chief medical officer does not want to change the coronavirus vaccination plan.

In an interview with Kossuth Radio’s Sunday Newspaper Müller Cecília said they were informed that fewer vaccines are likely to arrive next week. As he said, the extinguishing agent manufacturer Pfizer is preparing to build up additional capacity, so – probably for technical reasons – the plant needs to be prepared for this.

Ursula von der Leyen, the president of the european commission spoke on friday that there may be disruptions in coronavirus vaccine delivery to pfizer and bioNTech in europe in the coming weeks, but the two companies guarantee they will deliver on their previous commitments in the first quarter of 2021. Pfizer acknowledged that there may still be temporary disruptions until the beginning of February due to the expansion of its plant in Puurs, Belgium, but stressed that the expansion will significantly increase their production capacity.

Müller Cecília stressed in the radio interview that they are preparing not to have to reduce the amount of vaccines given in any way, so they will do everything they can to get an effective and safe vaccine. Thus, the Hungarian government is also looking for manufacturers outside the European Union.

According to the national chief medical officer, there is order in the vaccination places in Hungary. Everyone who receives the first vaccine will receive the second dose, which is absolutely necessary for the development of complete immunity. He sent a warning letter to the vaccination points about this, but so far this practice has been used because it is only professionally correct to carry out the vaccination series, he added.

Müller Cecília thanked those who registered for the coronavirus vaccine to apply. He explained that information is needed to reach those who want to vaccinate themselves, as it is not easy to arrange to vaccinate so many people. They are confident, he added, that even those who are currently skeptical are asking for the vaccine.

The national chief medical officer said that feedback will be sent to applicants at the email addresses provided. Information has already been sent and the interface will also display feedback on how successful the registration is. Registration is important so that they can always reach the next group based on the vaccination plan and be able to be notified where and when the vaccine will be given, he stressed. Müller Cecília.

The national chief medical officer had already received the coronavirus vaccine, as he said, with no side effects, no local symptoms, and even almost no vaccination.
