Pfizer CEO Says Two Covid Vaccine Doses Aren’t ‘Enough for Omicron’
Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla talks during a press conference with European Commission President after a visit to oversee the production of the Pfizer-BioNtech Covid-19 vaccine at the factory of US pharmaceutical company Pfizer, in Puurs, on April 23, 2021.
- “The two doses, they’re not enough for omicron,” Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said.
- Bourla said the two-dose vaccine does not provide robust protection against infection and its ability to prevent hospitalization has also declined.
- He said third shots are providing good protection against death, and “decent” protection against hospitalization.
Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla on Monday said two doses of the company’s vaccine may not provide strong protection against infection from the Covid omicron variant, and the original shots have also lost some of their efficacy at preventing hospitalization.
Bourla, in an interview at JPMorgan’s health-care conference, emphasized the importance of a third shot to boost people’s protection against omicron.
“The two doses, they’re not enough for omicron,” Bourla said. “The third dose of the current vaccine is providing quite good protection against deaths, and decent protection against hospitalizations.”
