BioNTech, which is the largest supplier together with Pfizer, plans to sell US $ 15.9 billion (almost € 13.5 billion) in vaccines this year. Earlier, the German pharmaceutical company assumed several billion dollars less. Pfizer said last month that the vaccines against COVID-19 will generate $ 33.5 billion in revenue this year. According to news agency Bloomberg, the coronavirus vaccine is thus on its way to becoming one of the best-selling medicines ever. Rheumatic drugs in particular usually bring a lot of money in the drawers of the pharmacists. Apart from Pfizer and BioNTech, who share the yields of their vaccine, the American Moderna and the British-Swedish AstraZeneca are also major players in this segment. AstraZeneca, the First party to market a Coronavirus vaccine, decided to sell it at cost. Two weeks ago, it was announced that the pharmaceutical company was losing 53 million dollars on sales in the first half of the year. In the first six months of 2021, $ 1.17 billion in revenue came in.
