GENEVA (LifeSiteNews) – Pfizer’s CEO Albert Bourla has said he is working on the creation of a new vaccine against COVID-19 that could be taken annually in order for people to become more “compliant” in taking COVID vaccines.  

Bourla made the comment at a press briefing organized by the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers & Associations (IFPMA), which took place Wednesday and where he discussed the creation of a new COVID vaccine.

An annual vaccine to boost ‘compliance’

“What the world really needs is a vaccine that can last a year,” stated Bourla. 

The head of the pharmaceutical giant described this idea as “the optimal public-health solution,” arguing that it would be easier to get the public to comply with a yearly vaccination, as opposed to vaccination every three or four months.  

“A vaccine that will be taken once a year is way [easier] to administer and [to] have the population be compliant with it,” he said.
