Pfizer CEO escaped questions at Davos about effect of Covid vaccine
An indemnity bond from India would entail exempting Pfizer from legal claims when it comes to side effects as a result of using the vaccine.
In the Swiss resort hosting the World Economic Forum known as Davos, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla was forced to escape a swarm of journalists who threw uncomfortable questions regarding Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine, which the company kept revising.
A video of Bourla surfaced of him being bombarded by questions regarding why Pfizer kept revising the effectiveness rate of its vaccine, which kept decreasing. The video was shared on social media by India's minister of state for technology, Rajeev Chandrasekhar. "Just to remind all Indians, that Pfizer tried to bully Govt of India into accepting conditions of indemnity," the minister said.

Bourla, who has been the CEO of Pfizer since 2019, evaded questions such as whether Pfizer intends to assume liability for the "ineffective vaccine's" side effects and whether he would issue refunds to countries that purchased it. The CEO merely replied with the phrases "Thank you very much" and "Have a nice day."
It was reported that the medical company made a massive amount of money off COVID-19 vaccines in 2021.
According to the Hindustan Times, Pfizer sought an indemnity bond from India when it began to roll out in the country, which is actually the world's biggest vaccine manufacturer. The indemnity bond would entail exempting Pfizer from legal claims when it comes to side effects as a result of using the vaccine.
