Pfizer can modify vaccine if needed for new variants - CEO

Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said on Tuesday that the company will be able to quickly make a "small variation" to its COVID-19 vaccine if the current version proves not as effective for new variants of the virus.

Bourla pointed out Pfizer is not working on a specific "booster" for a certain variant yet but is developing a process that will allow it to come up with such a shot "very fast" if needed.

Earlier, another vaccine maker, Moderna, stated it will conduct trials for an altered version of its coronavirus vaccine aimed specifically at the strain of the virus originating in South Africa.
