Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla has called his company’s Covid-19 vaccine candidate “the greatest medical advance in the last 100 years.”
Pfizer announced earlier on Monday that the vaccine is more than 90% effective according to early data.
“Emotions are very high,” Bourla told CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
The drugmaker has no safety concerns so far, Bourla added.
He added that the vaccine will be available free to all American citizens.
The CEO said Pfizer planned to have more than 1 billion doses available globally next year.
Around 10 million doses of the vaccine are to be manufactured and made available to the United Kingdom by the end of 2020 if approved by regulators, a Downing Street spokesperson said Monday.
According to the spokesperson, the UK has procured 40 million doses of the Pfizer candidate vaccine in total.
