Washington – (dpa):
A spokesman for Fires Pharmaceutical Industries said today, Thursday, that the company is open to selling doses of a vaccine against Covid-19 disease directly to US states that are trying to increase their supplies, pending approval by the federal government.
Pfizer spokesman Eamon Nolan added in an email to Bloomberg News that the company is ready to cooperate with the federal government on “a distribution model that gives the largest possible number of Americans access to our vaccine as quickly as possible.”
US officials have bought enough vaccine from Pfizer to immunize 100 million people. The federal government is distributing these doses throughout the country at a rate that some state and local leaders complain that it will take too long to vaccinate their residents.
