Albert Bourla, Pfizer’s chief executive officer (CEO) and chairman, said it could take up to a year for public life to return to normal after the epidemic, and that covid vaccines could be taken every year. He made the remarks on Sunday’s ABC’s This Week program.
“I think life will return to normal within a year,” he said. Even in normal life, caution must be exercised. I don’t think new variants will come. I don’t think we can live without vaccines. That is the situation for me.
The virus has spread all over the world and new variants may emerge. In addition, the protection of our vaccines lasts at least one year. I think the situation may be such that we may need to be vaccinated every year. But we don’t know if that will happen. We need to wait and review the information.
