As a third vaccine, almost everyone in Hungary is given a Western vaccine
By November 7, 1.36 million people had received their third vaccine in Hungary. Barely two percent of those who receive the booster vaccine use an oriental vaccine.
Although the statistics of the third vaccination – available in Hungary since the beginning of August – are also published on the government portal koronavirus.gov.hu on weekday mornings, they are only reported in aggregate. For example, it is not possible to know with which vaccine how many people have been vaccinated and from what age group.
However, in connection with the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), we statistics, you can now view that data on a weekly basis. According to this, there are hardly anyone who requests or receives Sinopharm or Sputnik as a third vaccine – as of November 7, only two percent of the 1.36 million people who received the third vaccine had received one of the oriental vaccines.
Sinopharm was given to 25,130 people as a yellow booster: two-thirds of them, 16,253 people, were over sixty years of age.
Memorable: the government introduced the option of a third vaccine (relatively soon in Europe) after the results of antibody tests showed that the effectiveness of the Chinese vaccine could be measured over a year. Only 803 people received Sputnik, and the AstraZeneca vaccine was given to 2,571 Hungarians as a third vaccine.
Most vaccines given as booster vaccines were manufactured by Pfizer (1,196,472 people, or 87.53 percent of those vaccinated), and the second most popular choice was Moderna (90,625 people, with 6.63 percent of all thirds vaccinated). vaccine). Tens of thousands, 51,306, of the single-dose Janssen have also been lost — that is, 3.75 percent of all third-person vaccine users.
Data maintained and published by the ECDC show how many people in each age group have been vaccinated. Of the 254 minors, 243 chose Pfizer and 11 chose Modern as their third vaccine – vaccinations for those under the age of eighteen started much later, with few of them having completed four months since their second vaccination. A good 19,000 of 18-24 year olds have taken the booster, which is 2.6 percent of the population in this age group. In the case of people aged 25-49, 233,000 people have already applied for a third vaccine, which is 6.69 percent for their age group.
The latter rate is much higher in the older groups:
- 169,000 (13.71 percent) of those aged 50-59,
- 379 thousand (29.27 percent) of those aged 60-69,
- of those aged 70-79, 393 thousand (45.71 percent), while
- among those over 80, 172,000 (39.31 percent) applied for a third vaccination.
