Hungary Will Start to Import Russia’s COVID-19 Vaccine from December

Hungary will start importing small quantities of a Russian-made COVID-19 vaccine in December for final testing and licensing, Reuters cited Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto as saying in a Facebook video today, on Thursday.

Budapest will ramp up Russian vaccine imports from late January and a Hungarian company may be able to switch from flu shot production to the Russian COVID-19 vaccine and start producing it, the minister added.
