“One thing is for sure, all virologists say that we are up to our necks in the fourth wave and that the hard part is yet to come. So, we are not past the peak. Therefore, the numbers will rise, and everyone can catch the virus, but not all with the same consequences,” Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said kicking off his morning interview. According to the PM, anyone who is not vaccinated is a danger not only to themselves, but also to the rest of us.
“The only thing that protects us from the virus is vaccination. And we are now also seeing, at least the experts are unanimous in saying, that 4 to 6 months after the second vaccination, the protective power of the vaccine weakens. Therefore, a third vaccination is justified. I can say no more than that I myself took the third vaccine after the second vaccination. I have not caught this virus yet, or if I do, I hope it will not knock me off my feet,” he said.
Speaking about anti-vaxxers, PM Orbán said that if everyone were vaccinated, there would be no fourth wave, or if there were one, “it would be more like a tiny little one.”
“In the end, everyone will have to be vaccinated; even the anti-vaxxers will realize that they will either get vaccinated or die. So, I urge everyone to take this opportunity. We’re having a vaccination week next week, and you can go to 101 vaccination points from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. to get your third or second vaccination without registering or signing up,” the PM said.
