In addition to a new shipment of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine sufficient to inoculate 39,000 people, Hungary will take delivery of 3,600 doses of Moderna’s vaccine on Tuesday, a department head of the National Public Health Centre said.

The new shipments will be used to continue the vaccination of Hungary’s health-care staff and retirement home residents and employees, Ágnes Galgóczi told a press conference of the operative board coordinating Hungary’s response to the pandemic.

Meanwhile, health authorities are also preparing to begin vaccinating law enforcement personnel directly involved in the pandemic response, Galgóczi said.

So far, 71,000 Covid-19 vaccines have been administered in the country, she said.
