Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó delivered 100,000 doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID vaccine that Hungary is lending to the Czech Republic to Prime Minister Andrej Babis in Prague on Thursday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Babis acknowledged the Hungarian government's assistance at an inoculation center in the capital.
A month earlier, Hungary lent the Czech Republic 41,000 COVID jabs.
Hungary, Austria, and Slovenia made a joint pledge in April to supply the Czech Republic with coronavirus vaccine after the country's order volume from Brussels was reduced following a redistribution compromise.
