1 year ago

The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine was the first vaccine to be made readily available in some parts of the world.

Recently, the National Father’s Day Committee named Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Pfizer, Albert Bourla, a 2021 Father of the Year.

Bourla will accept the Award on behalf of all Pfizer employees.

“During this extremely challenging year for families globally, we are privileged to have the opportunity to celebrate employees at Pfizer, who have made such crucial contributions to science and medicine during the pandemic,” said Dan Orwig, President and CEO of the Father’s Day/Mother’s Day Council.

“Their efforts have resulted in a safe and effective vaccine that is now giving us all hope that this worldwide crisis will soon be managed. We’re honoured to have Dr. Bourla accept this award on their behalf and we respect and admire the determination and leadership he has shown over his career, especially throughout the pandemic.”

The 79th Annual Father of the Year Awards will be presented virtually on June 17, 2021.

As part of the Council’s commitment to supporting meaningful philanthropies aiding mothers, fathers and children, the event will benefit Save the Children’s U.S. Programs and Advocacy.
