There will be three types of vaccines available in GP surgeries this week, the Pfizer vaccine is now coming to the districts for the first time, according to the National Chief Medical Officer, and they will receive a Moderna vaccine and prepare to start vaccinations with Oxford-AstraZeneca. Metropolitan district doctors must, however, select five people who will also accept the Russian vaccine. However, patients should only receive this vaccine at hospital vaccination points. The GPs interviewed by our paper did not yet know many details about how, when, what and how much vaccine they would receive this week, after being informed by the chief medical officer. But none of them were happy to have to use so many preparations at the same time. For example, Pfizer ampoules should be diluted after reconstitution, not Moderna, in a 10-dose vial, allowed to thaw at room temperature and aspirated with 0.5 ml of vaccine. AstraZeneca comes in similar packaging. One can be moved gently, not shaken, and so on. They also differ in who they can be given to. While almost anyone over the age of 16-18 can be vaccinated with Pfizer and Moderna in very few designs, AstraZeneca is not recommended for the elderly. According to Cecília Müller, the latter vaccine should be given to chronic patients aged 18 to 60 years. 85,410 doses of the Pfizer vaccine arrived in Hungary on Tuesday, while 21,600 doses of the Moderna vaccine are expected on Thursday. The chief medical officer also announced that 560 GPs in the capital will be asked this week to select five people in their practice to receive the Sputnik V vaccine at vaccination points. 2800 doses of this vaccine can be given at the moment and cannot be given to chronic patients, he added. The instructions for use of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine were published on the OGYÉI website almost simultaneously with the information of the operative strain. The two-component vaccine is given three weeks apart. However, the product is not recommended for patients with malignancy or chronic liver, kidney and endocrine disease. Among the latter, thyroid dysfunction and poorly controlled diabetes are highlighted in the description. In addition, caution is advised in severe hematopoietic disorders, epilepsy, coronary lesions, cerebrovascular disorders, various heart infections, and certain nervous and vascular diseases. It has also been suggested that vaccination may be risky in autoimmune diseases because stimulation of the immune system can lead to worsening of the condition. The most common complications include short-term flu-like symptoms, including chills, fever, joint pain, muscle aches, weakness, malaise, and headaches. After Russia, additional vaccines are expected to appear in Hungary: on Monday, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó spoke that Turkey would welcome Hungary’s scientific cooperation in the third, clinical phase of testing its own coronavirus vaccine. As a reminder, an attempt was made to bring the Russian vaccine for drug testing as well. According to our information, the government is already negotiating the import of an Indian preparation, Covishield. This drug was reported by BBC.com in mid-January as being manufactured under license for the AstraZeneca vaccine in India.
