EXCLUSIVE: The image the world has longed for … Covid vaccines roll off the conveyor belt in thousands of tiny bottles
- Pfizer robs thousands of doses of its Covid-19 vaccine in Belgium
- The drug is stored when the contents are found to be safe and effective
- The US-based company can provide 100 million cans if allowed
Whiz off the assembly line in thousands of tiny bottles – this is the vaccine that could end the Covid misery that is devouring the planet.
The drug giant Pfizer has already produced "several hundred thousand doses" of the sting at its plant in Puurs, Belgium, as The Mail was able to show on Sunday. They are stored and can be imported around the world if clinical trials are successful and regulators believe this is safe and effective.
The U.S. giant is hoping to provide 100 million cans this year, 40 million of which will be destined for the UK – a number dwarfed by the 1.3 billion jolts the company plans to make in 2021 becomes. Every patient who receives the vaccine will need two doses.

In an interview with The Mail this Sunday, Pfizer UK boss Ben Osborn said: “It was great to see the first bottle roll off the line. It just put an incredible smile on my face to see that all of this work actually leads to a product. "
Pfizer, who works with BioNTech in Germany, is currently conducting a study of 44,000 people and plans to apply for US emergency approval for its vaccine last week in November. This puts Pfizer in pole position in the race to introduce a Covid vaccine.
Pfizer's laboratory in Sandwich, Kent, has discovered drugs that could provide a potential cure for Covid-19, Osborn said.
