Hungary Approves Two More Vaccines from Outside EU

Hungary gave the initial approval to two more Covid-19 vaccines from outside the EU's procurement program, officials said Monday. The medicines regulator gave emergency approval to Convidecia, a vaccine produced by China's CanSino Biologics, and to India's Covishield vaccine, a version of the British-Swedish AstraZeneca vaccine, reported EUobserber on Tuesday.
Hungary was the first in the EU to begin using vaccines from Russia and China, and has the second-highest vaccination rate in the EU.
