The first delivery of an order of Russia's Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine arrived in Hungary on Tuesday, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said in a video message on Facebook, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

The minister noted that under an agreement reached with Moscow a little more than a week earlier, Hungary will get 2 million doses of the vaccine, enough to inoculate 1 million people, over three months. 

He said the shipment delivered Tuesday contains 40,000 ampoules, enough to inoculate 20,000 people.

The ampoules will be sent to the National Public Health Centre (NNK) where the necessary tests will be conducted by Hungarian experts, after which time they will be accessible to Hungarians, he said.
