Foreign Affairs and Trade Minister Péter Szijjártó on Thursday delivered 100,000 doses of the Pfizer / BioNTech COVID vaccine that Hungary is lending to the Czech Republic to Prime Minister Andrej Babis in Prague, according to a report by the state news wire MTI.
Babis acknowledged the help of the Hungarian government to a vaccination center in the capital.
A month earlier, Hungary had loaned the Czech Republic 41,000 COVID jabs.
Hungary, Austria and Slovenia jointly pledged in April to supply the Czech Republic with a coronavirus vaccine after the country’s order volume from Brussels was reduced following a redistribution compromise .
