In his radio interview yesterday morning, the Prime Minister announced the easing of restrictions as soon as we reach the five million vaccinees, and as usual we had to wait for the latest Hungarian Gazette to appear.
It states that “equivalent to the presentation of a protection certificate if the data subject has obtained protection against the coronavirus in accordance with Government Decree 60/2021 (II. 12.) vaccination “, the regulation itself came into force on Saturday, ie today.
All this means that where we have so far only been able to set foot on presentation of a protection certificate (accommodation and restaurants, spas, cultural institutions, etc.) now accept us with the application in question.
According to the Hungarian Tourism Agency (NGO), this was necessary in order not to disadvantage those who have already been vaccinated. n, but they still have not received the plastic card.
It is important to know that when we prove our protection with the application, we may also be asked to present the appropriate official card in order to clarify our identity. The data in the card and in the app are available to anyone who checks with COVID Control, but cannot record them due to the GDPR
It is interesting to note that the application only indicates vaccination for the time being. not whether the person may have previously contracted the infection. Until they start something with this shortcoming, many will be forced to carry a security card with them. Provided, of course, that they have received it.
