Foreign Affairs and Trade Minister Péter Szijjártó on Friday delivered 41,000 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 MTI news agency.
“Our Hungarian friends always helped us when we needed it, we could always count on them,” Babis said.
Czech government spokeswoman Jana Adamcova said the same volume of vaccine would be returned to Hungary when Czechia had enough.
A few days earlier, Hungary had loaned 300,000 AstraZeneca jabs to Slovenia.
Hungary is putting its mass vaccination campaign on “standby” mode, as most of those registered have already received their vaccine. More than half of the population has been vaccinated against the coronavirus.
