Pfizer CEO says 3rd COVID-19 booster shot ‘likely’ needed
Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla predicted Thursday that people who have received the company’s COVID-19 vaccine will “likely” need a third booster shot within a year to maintain protection against the virus.
The pharmaceutical chief said it’s also possible that people will need to get inoculated every year against coronavirus.
Pfizer had said as early as February that it was testing booster shots in case it was determined they would be needed.
Moderna has also said it is testing booster shots.
