Pfizer, Moderna to boost vaccine output significantly

American manufacturers of COVID-19 vaccines, Pfizer and Moderna, increased their expected production speed, according to remarks prepared on Tuesday by senior executives of the two companies.

Pfizer Chief Business Officer John Young revealed that his company expects to deliver over 13 million doses per week to the United States by mid-March.

At the same time, Moderna President Stephen Hoge noted similar efforts to double vaccine shipments to the US, hoping to reach 40 million doses per month. However, the company could further improve the output if the FDA allows more vaccine doses per vial, he concluded.
