Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla tweeted that his company “is not having any production issues with our COVID-19 vaccine, and no shipments containing the vaccine are on hold or delayed.
This week we successfully shipped all 2.9 million doses that we were asked to ship by the U.S. government to the locations specified by them,” he tweeted.
“We have millions more doses sitting in our warehouse but, as of now, we have not received any shipment instructions for additional doses. We have continuously shared with Operation Warp Speed (OWS) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services through weekly meetings every aspect of our production and distribution capabilities. They have visited our facilities, walked the production lines and been updated on our production planning as information has become available,” Bourla added.
Pfizer said it is confident it can deliver 50 million doses globally this year and up to 1.3 billion doses next year.
