Hungary’s Vaccine Website Crashes Amid Clamor for Pfizer Shot

Hungary’s vaccine registration website crashed after the government allowed the general public to register for a Pfizer coronavirus shot for one day only.

Authorities blamed “irresponsible people” for the crash, saying the site had come under attack. But in Hungary’s major cities, people stood in lines -- some almost a kilometer-long -- outside of vaccine centers on Friday as they sought to get Pfizer doses, local media reported.
