Making a statement about the coronavirus vaccine developed by Pfizer-BioNTech, Albert Bourla, CEO and Chairman of the US company Pfizer, came with a statement about the vaccine.
Bourla said in an interview with the US media, “Although I have protection, can I still pass it on to others?” “I think that the issue of whether the virus is transmitted after vaccination is something that needs to be examined. We are not sure of this with what we know now,” he replied. In November, Pfizer announced that the vaccine candidate is more than 90 percent effective in preventing COVID-19 and has applied for an emergency use clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
PRODUCTION REDUCED BY 50 MILLION DOSES
A depressing news came from Pfizer-BioNTech’s corona virus vaccine, which the world is looking forward to. It was stated that the 100 million target set for this year was reduced to 50 million doses, due to the problems in the first group of the raw material used in the production of the vaccine.
The vaccine, developed by Pfizer together with the German biotech company Biontech, consists of two doses. In order to protect against the virus, the person to be vaccinated should be given two doses of vaccine at regular intervals.

PROVIDES 95 PERCENT PROTECTION
It was determined that the BNT162b2 coded vaccine developed by Biontech and Pfizer provided 95 percent protection against Covid-19 after extensive tests. It is stated that the vaccine provides almost the same protection in all age groups and people with extraordinary demographic characteristics and does not have any serious side effects. The vaccine provides 94 percent protection for those over 65 years old.
However, it is not known how long the vaccine provides protection against infection.
HOW WILL THE PRICES BE?
Speaking to Reuters, EU officials said the European Union paid more than $ 10 billion to purchase the vaccine developed by Pfizer and BioNTech. The source, who did not reveal his name, used the phrase, “More than $ 10 billion was paid to receive millions of doses of vaccine.”
It was stated that the EU would pay 15.50 euros for the dose of Covid-19 vaccine. It was stated that the USA would pay 19.5 dollars per dose for the same vaccine.
It was also emphasized that the vaccine should be used in double dose.
