But studies from Pfizer indicate "we have a good chance that we will know if the product works by the end of October."
Bourla said Pfizer is preparing for approval from the federal government and distribution of a vaccine before the end of the year.
"We started already manufacturing and we have already manufactured hundreds of thousands of doses, so just in case we have a good study readout, conclusive and FDA, plus the advisory committee feels comfortable that we will be ready," he said. ■
