Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla says people reluctant to get vaccine put society's health at risk

August 6, 2020 | 8:26 PM GMT
Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla says a coronavirus vaccine will not be an immediate "silver bullet." It will need to be used in conjunction with other methods like social distancing until more people are vaccinated and herd immunity is achieved. He added people who are reluctant to be vaccinated need to understand that their decision not only impacts them, but society at large. "Unfortunately, by making this decision, they will become the weak links in the way that the virus is transmitted...and they will risk society's health, rather than [their] own health. It's also something that they need to take into consideration."
