Pfizer CEO: No “normal life” without regular vaccinations

The CEO of pharmaceutical giant Pfizer has said that normal life could return within a year, but not without regular Covid-19 vaccinations.

The remarks were made by executive Albert Bourla when speaking to ABC News this week, in response to a question about when he saw the pandemic ending.

Initially Bourla replied: “Within a year, I think we will be able to come back to normal life,” adding that variants of the virus will continue to crop up.

However, he continued: “…I don’t think that this means that we should be able to live our lives without having vaccinations, basically.”

Bourla said that he believed the “most likely scenario” was “annual re-vaccinations” due to “new variants” emerging over time.

Just last week, Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel said that even young people would need to get vaccine booster shots at least once every three years.
