According to the CEO of Pfizer, getting a booster shot every four to five months is not a good scenario. During an interview on Saturday, Albert Bourla said he hopes to administer an annual vaccine.

The pharmaceutical and biotechnology corporation chief said it’s easier to convince people to get the shot and it’s easier for people to remember. He also revealed plans for a new vaccine to combat Omicron and future strains of the virus.

“We are looking to see if we can create a vaccine that covers Omicron and doesn’t forget the other variants,” he explained. “And that could be a solution unless if something completely different comes out.”

Bourla said Pfizer expects to have a vaccine ready to combat Omicron as soon as March.
