So far, some 598,000 people in Hungary have registered to be vaccinated against Covid-19, Csaba Dömötör, a state secretary of the Prime Minister’s Office, said on Facebook on Tuesday.
Fully 462,000 people have registered for the vaccine on the website vakcinainfo.gov.hu while 136,000 have sent in a registration form by mail, Dömötör said.
Because vaccination against Covid-19 is voluntary, it was crucial, he said, that the authorities know who wants to be inoculated. Those who register can opt to receive regular updates on the vaccination programme, Dömötör added.
Mass vaccinations against the virus will be carried out under a vaccination plan, he noted, encouraging the public to register for the shot.
