Budapest Mayor Calls For Vaccine Refunds
The cabinet should get back the Ft 30 billion it spent on the Sinopharm vaccines now sitting unused in warehouses, Budapest mayor Gergely Karácsony wrote on Facebook on Sunday. He said there are at least three million unused Chinese vaccines in the country.

The Hungarian state procured the Chinese vaccines through an intermediary company.

Danubia Pharma bought five million Chinese vaccines for Ft 55 billion, but the state did not explain the benefits of the transaction nor why the company had struck the deal.

Russia has refunded Slovakia for returned Sputnik V vaccines, Karácsony noted.
