As per the last year’s vaccine development record, Pfizer has made a huge decision which vowed them to fore-go profits on their vaccine shots during the Covid-19 pandemic. On Tuesday, the firm declared their total revenue with the production of their vaccines. The production of the vaccine brought them the combined income of about $3.5 billion in the first three months of this year. However, this is nearly a quarter of its total revenue, as per the Pfizer reports. The vaccine sets to be the biggest source of revenue for Pfizer company.
The Pfizer didn’t reveal the profits it derives from the vaccine, it recapitulated the previous predictions they made. This clearly states that the company’s profit margins on the vaccine would be in the high 20 percent range. Thus, this would be relocated into roughly $900 million in pretax vaccine profits in the first quarter. Evidently, Pfizer has been extensively attributed with the evolution of an unproven technology that has saved an untold number of lives.
The vaccine shots prepared by Pfizer have unreasonably reached to be globally rich. This sets to be an outcome, so far at least, at odds with its chief executive’s pledge to ensure that poorer countries “have the same access as the rest of the world” to a vaccine that is highly effective at preventing Covid-19.
According to the reports of World Health Organisation, as of April, the wealthy countries have strongly secured more than 87 percent of the more than 700 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines dispensed globally. On the other hand, the poor countries had received only 0.2 percent. In wealthy countries, roughly one person out of four have received a vaccine. In poor countries, it’s just about one out of 500, getting vaccinated.
