Albert Bourla, the head of the manufacturer of the coronavirus vaccine Pfizer, said that he expects “within a year” to return to normal life after the coronavirus pandemic but subject to annual vaccination.
“I think we can return to normal life. I don’t think that this means that new variants (of the virus) will not come. And I don’t think that this means that we will be able to live a normal life without vaccination,” Bourla said on ABC TV.
“We will have vaccines, the effect of which will last at least a year. In the most likely scenario, we are talking about annual revaccination,” Bourla said.
He also promised in the coming days to hand over to American regulators the research data that the company conducted on children aged 5-11 years. According to the company, the study confirmed the safety and effectiveness of its vaccine for this age category.
