Hungary has an advance order from European Union programs for 6.5 million doses of coronavirus vaccine, but it is also considering vaccines from Russia and China, Gergely Gulyás, the head of the Prime Ministerʼs Office, said at a weekly press briefing on Thursday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

"We are trying to establish legal guarantees that give the government the chance to be among the first to buy a vaccine, be it from the West or the East," Gulyás said.
