How do you balance being one of the world’s saviors during a pandemic without being perceived as gloating or, more important, gouging a global population in need? That’s the tricky needle Pfizer has had to thread, given the company’s status as one of the most effective coronavirus vaccine manufacturers in the world. Pfizer recorded 2020 revenues of about $42 billion—but that largely excludes the post-winter period, when Pfizer’s COVID vaccine was granted emergency use authorization by the FDA. The company expects to bring in $26 billion in COVID vaccine sales alone this year, about 60% of its total 2020 revenues, thanks to its sprawling relationships with governments and pandemic-focused organizations across the globe. An added benefit? Via its partnership with Germany’s BioNTech, the maker of the “little blue pill” is now synonymous with mRNA vaccine technology that could feed its pipeline in infectious disease treatments and other therapeutics for years to come.
