Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, said he felt liberated after getting his second dose of Covid-19 vaccine.
“I did my second shot a few days ago and I tweeted about it and I felt liberated,” he told CNBC’s Meg Tirrell on Squawk Box Thursday. “My family haven’t received it yet, but I hope pretty soon we’ll find opportunities to get them vaccinated as well.”
Bourla also echoed public health experts, telling CNBC’s Becky Quick that he would encourage people to get whichever vaccine was available to them first.
“I will tell you in full honestly what I tell to my relatives or my family if they’re asking me what to do,” Bourla said. “And I tell them, if you get, if you try to get an appointment for a Pfizer vaccine and the center will give it to you in two months, and you can get an appointment for another vaccine, the J&J let’s say, this week, I urge you to go and do the J&J vaccine, it’s very important.”
