Hungarian Labor Minister Miklos Kasler said that the National Center for Public Health has completed a study of documents from the manufacturer and concluded that the Russian vaccine can be used for people.
Hungary has now approved four drugs for vaccination - Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Sputnik V.
Hungary became the first country in the European Union to approve the use of the Russian vaccine. In a number of states, so far there are only discussions about its use.
The registration was held on fast-track procedure – without extra clinical studies in the territory of the state.
“The Russian Direct Investment Fund announces the approval of the Russian vaccine against coronavirus Sputnik V by the Ministry of Health and Prevention of the UAE. Sputnik V vaccine is registered in the UAE within fast-track procedure on the basis of the result of the third phase of the clinical trials in Russia with the participation of over 33,000 people,” the fund said.
