Regarding the vaccine acquisition of the EU, the prime minister said they had always planned to be self-supplying, to bag what they had to pack, and to start building their own factory. It is estimated that in the autumn of 2022, at the latest at the end of next year, the new Hungarian vaccine factory will start production, which will produce the Hungarian vaccine developed until then.
In a hundred days, the cornerstone of the national vaccine factory will be laid in Debrecen, announced László György, State Secretary for Economic Strategy and Regulation of the Ministry for Innovation and Technology, at noon Monday.
He stressed that:
the University of Debrecen has the necessary knowledge for the factory to ensure sufficiency in vaccines against new epidemics and infectious diseases for Hungarians and residents of the surrounding countries from the end of 2022.
