Pfizer Expects Vaccine Will Be “Durable Revenue Stream” As It Seeks Approval For Children 2 To 11

    Yesterday, Pfizer released a strong earnings report (surpassing Wall Street’s elevated projections), and also revealed that it’s both on the cusp of securing regulatory approval in the US for minors between the ages of 12 and 15 to receive the vaccine (setting off another wave of demand as the Biden Administration heaps pressure on states to get their vaccination numbers up).

    During a call with analysts and reporters, CEO Albert Bourla revealed that Pfizer is in talks with “basically all the governments of the world” about providing shots and booster shots through 2024.

    The key number is that Pfizer expects sales of its coronavirus jab to hit $26 billion by the end of this year, a milestone that would make the vaccine the company’s biggest-selling pharmaceutical product, eclipsing Humira, the popular rheumatoid arthritis drug made by Abbvie. Also, Pfizer said it intends to use its mRNA technology underpinning its COVID-19 jab for other therapies and vaccines. For example, the company is working on creating seasonal flu shots using the same RNA lipid nanoparticle technology.

    Bourla has already primed the public to expect to receive at least one additional shot within a year of their second dose, while also teasing the likelihood that the world might require annual booster shots – something that would be a boon to Pfizer’s bottom line as it moves to grow its COVID-19 vaccine division into a major, and permanent, line of business.

    To help make its product more durable (and thus increase demand in poorer countries) the company said it is studying whether doses ould be stored at standard refrigerator temperatures.

    Regardless, Bourla expects “durable demand” for vaccnes, similar to the flu vaccine.

    “It is our hope that the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine will continue to have a global impact by helping to get the devastating pandemic under control and helping economies around the world not only open, but stay open,” Bourla said in prepared remarks.

    That’s bad news for the rag-tag band of emerging-market economies pushing a proposal at the WTO to waive IP rights when it comes to vaccine technology. If Washington were to back such a move, it would supercharge the “open vaccine” movement, and represent a major threat to Pfizer’s latest profit stream. That effort is being led by India and South Africa, yet Bill Gates and Washington lobbyists have continued to insist that respecting IP and letting Big Pharma handle global distribution (as Covax dramatically lags expectations), which means the status quo is likely safe.

    Even as WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus decries a “shocking imbalance in the global distribution of vaccines” and calls for more efforts to fortify the WHO’s Covax programs and speed up delivery to poorer nations, Pfizer appears to be more focused on building out its latest profit stream.

    President Biden said Tuesday that while he had yet to make a decision on whether to support a vaccine waiver, the US was already moving “as quickly as we can” to export doses.

    Pfizer’s earnings were so strong, they helped lift shares of vaccine makers on the other side of the world. Shares of some Asian vaccine makers with deals to distribute Pfizer’s jabs on the Continent rallied in sympathy with Pfizer. India’s Pfizer Ltd., a unit of Pfizer, rallied 4.9%, on Wednesday while Dr. Reddy’s and Cadila Healthcare rallied as much as 2.7% and 5.9%.

    Looking ahead, CNN reported Wednesday that the FDA will approve the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID jab for use in 12 to 15-year-olds as early as next week. Data released by Pfizer recently purported to show that the jab is 100% effective at preventing serious symptoms. According to recent media reports, Pfizer is also seeking approval for the vaccine to be used on children as young as 2 and as old as 11 in both the US and Europe, an authorization it expects to arrive in September.

      1. This is pure classic fascism, a merging of gov’t and corporations for their mutual benefit. The State doesn’t really care about money (if it did it would not have incomprehensible debt and deficits, the dollar would be backed up by something of value, there would be no inflation, and it would maintain a budget) but does has an insatiable appetite for more and more power and control. However, the State does not always have the necessary resources for its goals. Businesses on the other hand, may have the resources and expertise, and by cooperating with gov’t get huge profits, tax breaks, legal exemptions, and special rights and privileges.
        In this case, big Pharma gets guaranteed massive profits for years to come, and the State is able to see that its citizens are injected with an experimental gene therapy for its sinister purposes. With fascism, the State and big business mutually achieve their goals by making the citizens the target.
        By saying no thanks to the “vaccine” you deprive both entities of their desire to use you as they see fit.

      2. Its all about the money, the kids are secondary. How much does Fauci have invested?

      3. A profit motive would be shortsighted, if Covax kills the human host as effectively as the lab ferrets.

      4. Yeah, I can’t stand that big pharma…

        “Honey…did you see my Viagra pills?”

      5. Yea…I can’t stand these big pharma outfits.

        “Honey…did you see my Viagra pills?”

      6. Maybe, there will not be easy antivirals, painkillers, mail order prescriptions, etc, etc, forever and ever, but I believe (calmly) that there are still countless workarounds, for the time being.

        Someone has just told me that her only possible doctor is withholding her only possible, life-saving prescription, unless she takes Covax. (Have you ever seen one of those giant phonebooks?)

        I was being hushed. (excitedly) The party left the room and took the conversation elsewhere. ¯\_ (ツ)_/¯
