Watch: PM Orbán Vaccinated With Chinese Sinopharm Vaccine
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has been vaccinated with the Chinese Sinopharm vaccine, photographs posted on his Facebook page showed.

Orbán got the jab at a vaccination point in the Hungarian Armed Forces Medical Centre. After receiving the vaccine, he said vaccination was the only possible protection against the coronavirus epidemic.

Orbán said on Facebook that “we are being attacked by the third wave of the coronavirus epidemic which will be stronger than the previous two”. He asked all Hungarians to register and get vaccinated.

Orbán said it was “worth listening to those who know better”, adding that he was vaccinated after Chief Medical Officer Cecília Müller had decided that the members of the body in charge of epidemic prevention should also be vaccinated.

A video posted on Facebook showed Orbán being vaccinated after receiving a medical examination including a temperature check. After getting vaccinated, Orbán said in his office that he had no complaints at all and encouraged people not to fear vaccination.

He added that tens of thousands of ethnic Hungarians had received the Chinese vaccine in Vojvodina and several thousand people in Hungary. He called on people to trust Hungarian professionals.
