Hungary's government has decided to allow booster shots for people who are four months past their second jab of a COVID vaccine from August 1, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said in a weekly interview on public radio on Friday.

Orbán said the government had decided to reach out personally, through GPs, medical residents and medical school students, to older Hungarians who have not yet been vaccinated against the coronavirus.

He added that the government had also decided to make COVID vaccination available in all schools for Hungarian children 12 and older, with their parents' consent, during the two days ahead of the start of the school year on September 1.
