The CEO of Pfizer is under fire for making misleading remarks about the COVID-19 vaccine in children.
A United Kingdom pharmaceutical watchdog filed a complaint about statements made by CEO Albert Bourla.
Back in 2021, Bourla gave an interview in which he touted the benefits of the vaccine for five-year-olds.
However, the U.K. group claims that the effectiveness of the vaccine in children ages five-to-11 dropped 12% after one week of inoculation.
The group also called the statements misleading and promotional. As a result, Pfizer has been accused of breaking several codes of conduct.
