The official representative of the European Commission, Stefan de Keersmaker, said during a briefing that even if the Russian vaccine Sputnik V against the coronavirus is approved urgently for use in Hungary, the drug will not be used in other European countries, Interfax reports.
In the European Union, you can use only those drugs that were approved by the European Medicines Agency, Keersmaker explains. In some cases, the authorities of a country may allow the drug to enter the market in their country, but there should be transparency in vaccine issues.
Thus, if Hungary decides to use the Russian vaccine, it can do this for its citizens, but it will be responsible for this. Other European countries will not participate in this.
