Where Hope Meets Heroes

Pfizer is unleashing the power of science and partnering  to provide transformative solutions that improve health for all.

As COVID-19 began its rapid spread across the world in early 2020, Pfizer was already working closely with German biotech BioNTech to develop an influenza vaccine. With the global pandemic looming, the two companies quickly pivoted, hoping to turn a desperate need into a medical reality as they began developing a vaccine for COVID-19.

The two companies chose to pursue a nontraditional method of using mRNA to neutralize the virus. Until 2020, there had never been an mRNA vaccine or drug that received FDA approval.

In December 2020, Pfizer and BioNTech become the first to receive FDA emergency use authorization for a COVID-19 vaccine and are currently on track to deliver at least 2 billion vaccine doses around the world by the end of 2021.

Pfizer and BioNTech continue to test the vaccine against new variants, sharing the results of studies, and demonstrating that the vaccine elicits antibodies that neutralize SARS-CoV-2 with mutations.

Pfizer is working every day to translate cutting-edge science into next-generation vaccines and restore hope to society. Biocom California is proud to support them in their quest to eliminate infectious diseases and advance breakthrough medicines through innovation and partnering.
