Pfizer could become a yearly COVID shot

(KYMA, KECY) - The COVID-19 vaccine could eventually become a yearly shot, at least that's the hope of Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla.

In an interview with an Israeli news outlet, he said he wants people to get a yearly COVID-19 vaccine, like the flu, instead of them having to get a booster every several months.

Bourla said it would be easier to convince people to get vaccinated that way.

Right now, Pfizer is looking to create a vaccine that protects against omicron and some of the other variants.
