The Hungarian authorities have suspended vaccination of the population against the coronavirus with the drug AstraZeneca, due to technical problems with alerting the population. This was reported by RIA Novosti, referring to the publication of the local newspaper Hungary Today.
The head of the state vaccination campaign confirmed the suspension of vaccinations with AstraZenec this weekend, blaming database synchronization problems.
Before vaccination in Hungary, SMS messages are received with information about the place, time and procedure for receiving the drug. However, Hungarians complain that, for example, they were assigned to be vaccinated at a medical center hundreds of kilometers away from their place of residence. Complaints are also received about the inability to change the time or place of vaccination. Some registered for vaccinations do not receive confirmation at all. The opposite cases were also recorded: persons who had already been vaccinated before received notifications about the vaccination they had been assigned.
At the same time, as the newspaper notes, the head of the Cabinet plans that by the beginning of April, about 2.4 million residents of the country will be vaccinated.
