“Many people believe that the most frequently washed body part in 2020-21 was the hands, but in reality; it was the BRAIN.” – Bhushan Mahadani

In February of 2022, Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer proudly stated that in less than two years the successes of Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine had “fundamentally changed Pfizer and its culture forever.”
Yes, that is certainly true. It changed not only Pfizer but all of us. Forever.
The pressure is now on Bourla to come up with the next blockbuster drug. And we will all be expected to take it. Some of us will refuse. But how many of us can say that at some point in our lives we have not fallen under the spell of a drug company and the promises they gave us?
Bourla is facing the biggest challenge of his career. Not only are the heady days of billion-dollar profits from Covid vaccines and Paxlovid winding down, but Pfizer is set to lose up to $18 billion in revenue from 2025 through 2030 as it loses several key patents.
If you are the CEO of Pfizer, with a salary of $24.3 million for 2021, equity holdings of nearly 597,000 shares worth more than an estimated $32 million and are entitled to a golden parachute of nearly $113 million, you better believe you are going to have to up your game over the next few years if you are going to keep your shareholders happy.
Upping its game will not be easy for Pfizer since the Covid vaccine, with its “groundbreaking technology”, has been the largest selling pharmaceutical product in history.
In just the first three months of 2021, Pfizer made $3.5 billion from the Covid vaccine. Pfizer went on to make a staggering $36.8 Billion in 2021. It expects revenue of $29 billion in 2022. This despite recently admitting that the vaccine does not stop transmission, nor does it stop people from getting sick. The company expects to make at least $22 billion from Paxlovid, the drug that causes “Covid rebound”.
In a rational world, none of this would make sense. But that’s not where we live. We live in a world where people have been led to believe that they must constantly consume pharmaceutical products or else they will literally die. These companies don’t actually want you to die. They want to keep you just sick enough that you become enslaved to their medications for life.
Pfizer’s overall revenues in 2021 doubled to $81.3bn, and it expects to make record revenues of $98bn to $102bn in 2022. How will it continue this upward trend?
There’s a plethora of illness out there. Which ones are most likely to turn the biggest profit is the question. In the past twelve months, Pfizer launched 16 new products. On its website, Pfizer describes itself as a “pipeline” of potential breakthroughs in the making.
We’re in relentless pursuit of medicines and vaccines that will benefit patients around the world. We’re committed to treating 225M people with breakthrough treatments by 2025. Our ambitions are big and our product pipeline has never been stronger.
