Pfizer’s CEO said he will get Covid-19 jab – when it’s his rightful turn

An extract from a TV interview with Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla is being shared online alongside the claim that the head of the pharmaceutical giant refused to take the Covid-19 vaccine manufactured by his company because “my type is not recommended”. This is misleading; Bourla only said he will not jump the queue to get the shot. He will wait until his age group is eligible; current government guidelines prioritize high-risk individuals and seniors.
