Pfizer forecast more than $50 billion in 2022 sales for its Covid-19 vaccine and medicine this week as the giant pharma company reported a more than doubling of annual profits on strong vaccine sales. [Not really surprising though is it?]
Pfizer, which with German company BioNTech won approval for the first vaccine to counter COVID-19, sees slightly lower 2022 revenues for the vaccine compared to 2021, but a big infusion of revenues from Paxlovid, the company’s medicine for COVID-19.
“2021 was a watershed year for Pfizer,” said Chief Executive Albert Bourla in a statement. “Our successes in leading the fight against COVID-19 have not only made a positive difference in the world; I believe they have fundamentally changed our company forever.”
Pfizer reported annual profits of $22 billion, more than double the 2020 level. Annual revenues nearly doubled to $81.3 billion, with $36.8 billion from the COVID-19 vaccine.
