The World Health Organisation’s (WHO) approval of the Sinopharm vaccine is “a justification” for the Hungarian government’s vaccination policy, Human Resources Minister Miklós Kásler said on Friday evening, in reaction to WHO’s announcement.
“Hungary’s vaccination policy has been driven exclusively by health-care considerations, political or economic considerations did not play any role,” he said on Facebook.
Kásler noted that China has delivered to Hungary enough doses to have more than one million people fully inoculated against coronavirus.
The national vaccination programme has allowed a gradual reopening of the country, he said.
