Washington, D.C. – The Campaign for Sustainable Rx Pricing (CSRxP) issued a statement Monday reacting to preliminary data released by Pfizer Inc. on the efficacy of the company’s COVID-19 vaccine.
“Any COVID-19 treatments and vaccines that ultimately come to market must be priced responsibly so they are accessible and affordable for all Americans,” said CSRxP executive director Lauren Aronson. “While Pfizer’s vaccine announcement reflects only preliminary data, the company should commit now to affordable pricing and policymakers must be prepared to hold Big Pharma accountable if companies try to price-gouge these products.”
