Government needs to find solution for Hungarians vaccinated with Sinopharm, Sputnik
The government must find a solution to the problem faced by 2 million Hungarians who have been jabbed with the Sputnik and Sinopharm vaccines who cannot travel freely in Europe because the jabs are not licenced by the bloc, a Socialist MEP said on Tuesday.
“This says everything about the government’s incompetence,” he said.
Ujhelyi said Ursula von der Leyen, the European Commission president, had accepted his proposal that the issue be brought before the European Health Security Committee with the aim of ensuring that Hungarians vaccinated with a non-European-approved vaccine should also be free to travel within the EU.
Reportedly, the government has not raised the issue with the European Commission, he added.
