According to “CNBC”, Burla said, “People will likely need a booster dose of the” Covid-19 “vaccine within 12 months of receiving the full vaccination, and it is likely that people will need to be vaccinated against the virus annually.
He pointed out that “it is very important to control people who may be susceptible to infection with the virus, explaining that vaccines will be an important tool in combating highly contagious diseases.”
The CEO of Pfizer announced last Tuesday that “the company has increased production of its vaccine against Covid-19, and it can deliver an additional 10 percent of the doses to the United States by the end of May.”
It is noteworthy that the company “Pfizer” had previously requested the US Food and Drug Administration to allow it to expand the use of the emerging “Corona” virus vaccine, to include adolescents between the ages of 12 and 15 years.
Pfizer claims that its COVID-19 vaccine is 100% effective in children between the ages of 12 and 15.
Commenting on the announcement of “Pfizer / Biontech”, the CEO of the company expressed his hope to start vaccinating this age group before the start of the next academic year.
The company “Pfizer” is also studying the effectiveness of the vaccine with children between the ages of 6 months and 11 years, after it gave the first doses for those age groups last March.
