The third delivery of a Covid-19 vaccine developed by BioNTech and Pfizer arrived in Hungary early Tuesday, public television reported.

News channel M1 said 39,000 doses of the vaccine had arrived, and about 5,000 of those would be delivered to the central pharmacy of Semmelweis University in the capital. 

Hungary took its first delivery of close to 10,000 doses of the vaccine on the day after Christmas. The second delivery, of 70,000 doses, arrived on December 30.

Hungary has ordered a total of 4.4 million doses of the vaccine as part of a joint European Union order. Including orders from other pharmaceutical companies, Hungary will get more than 17 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine.
