Pfizer to make 6B vaccine doses in next 18 months - CEO

Pfizer Inc. Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Albert Bourla stated on Wednesday his company and BioNTech SE are planning to manufacture six billion doses of their vaccine against COVID-19 in the next 18 months.

"We are going to make three billion doses this year – one that we had in the first half, so two billion doses more in the second half. That means, on an annualized basis in 2022, four billion doses," Bourla told Axios.

Pfizer and BioNTech recently announced they have reached an agreement with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to provide its vaccine for athletes competing at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.
