Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla tests positive for Covid-19 again


Bourla said he had no symptoms.

“Although we have made great progress, the virus is still with us,” he said.

The CEO said he has yet to receive the updated Covid-19 reminder as he is waiting three months after his previous Covid-19 infection. He tested positive for Covid-19 in August.

The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that people who have recently recovered from Covid-19 infection wait to be boosted at least until the disease has passed and a person no longer contagious. The CDC says a person “may consider delaying your vaccine for 3 months from when your symptoms started.”

Being infected can act as a booster, and studies have shown that people have a relatively low risk of getting sick again for about three months after recovering.

People may not want to wait as long as three months if Covid-19 levels are high in the community or they have reduced immune function, CNN reported.

The CDC approved updated booster shots from Pfizer and Moderna on September 1.

Is the Covid-19 pandemic really “over”?

The updated vaccine from Pfizer/BioNTech is a 30 microgram dose authorized for people 12 years and older. Moderna’s updated vaccine is an authorized 50-microgram dose for people 18 years of age and older.
