Hungary received its first batch of 550,000 doses of China's Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine on Tuesday, making it the first EU country to use Chinese-made jabs.

Officials from the Hungarian government and Chinese Ambassador to Hungary Qi Dayu welcomed the vaccine's arrival at the Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport around 10 a.m.

Hungary approved Sinopharm's COVID-19 vaccine on January 29, making it the first country from the European Union to greenlight the Chinese vaccine.
