The cost of the Pfizer and BioNTech’s Vaccine will be $39.00, $19.50 per dose. Two doses are required and are given three weeks apart. An associate professor of Operations Management & Business Analytics at Johns Hopkins, Tinglong Dai, said the U.S. will initially give the vaccines to adults.
According to what Dai told Fox News via email, “Given that the U.S. has a total of 250 million adults. If 75% of the adult population takes two doses each, we will need about 375 million doses.”
It is still unknown exactly when the vaccine will be approved by the FDA, but most experts feel that it will be distributed to all Americans during the second half of 2021.
