PFIZER: Vaccine Costs To Reduce

By Winnie Mandela

The drive to eliminate diseases globally through vaccination has gathered pace, with Pfizer, a leading manufacturer and developer of pharmaceutical medicines raising its focus on this critical category.

As the world marks the World Immunization Week, Pfizer has announced the introduction of a new vaccination presentation that will help to significantly reduce the cost and access of vaccines against communicable diseases in developing countries.

According to Pfizer Medical Director Kodjo Soroh, vaccines have significantly reduced the threat of diseases that were once widespread and sometimes fatal.

“Immunization is widely recognized as one of the most successful and cost effective health interventions.  Pfizer’s goal is to protect lives with innovative vaccines to fight serious diseases worldwide and make vaccination against potentially deadly diseases available,” said Kodjo Soroh.
