Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla received the second dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine in March 2021.
On March 10, 2021, Bourla tweeted a photo of him getting the vaccine. The caption indicated that he received the second dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine. He added that the journey was far from over as they work tirelessly to beat the virus.
Bourla told 'Axios on HBO' that he felt "liberated" after receiving the Pfizer vaccine's first dose. He added, "If it was the case, can I get a vaccine now - any vaccine now - or a vaccine that I prefer two months later, I would go with whatever I can get now."
The vaccine developed by Pfizer in partnership with Germany-based BioNTech was approved for emergency use in the U.S. to prevent COVID-19. The FDA authorized the vaccine on December 11, 2020, for people aged 16 and older.
