Burla said he thought it would be necessary to maintain a “very high level of protection.”
He explained that the company was already working to develop a customized vaccine against the new variant of omicron unveiled in South Africa. Customized vaccines could be ready in 100 days.
According to Burla, vaccines have helped save millions of lives during a pandemic, and without them “the very fabric of our society would be threatened.”
Addressing those who are afraid to get vaccinated, he called to remember that the only human emotion that is stronger than fear is love. “I always use that argument because the decision to get vaccinated will protect not only your health, but also the health of other people, including the people you love the most because they are the ones you interact with.”
Pfizer plans to produce three billion doses of vaccine this year and four billion next year. Pfizer plans to adjust the vaccines in the near future so that they can be stored in the refrigerator for three months.
The company has also produced Paxlovid, which has shown a positive trend in trials, reducing hospitalizations and deaths by almost 90%.
