December 18, 2020

BUDAPEST, Hungary — Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban says the country plans to begin vaccinating 35,000 health care workers on Dec. 27 or 28, under an expected European Union plan to begin delivering vaccines to its member states.

During a weekly radio broadcast on Friday, Orban said vaccinations will begin with health workers in the capital Budapest, followed by medics in regional hospitals.

He said the vaccination will be free and voluntary and urged health care workers to be vaccinated.

The country’s mass vaccination program is expected to begin early in the new year.

Hungary recorded 4,428 new coronavirus infections over the past day and 187 deaths. That brings the total number of infections in the nation of nearly 10 million people to 295,977, with 7,725 deaths.
