Sky news reports: Mr Bourla, 60, contacted COVID back in August and had started a course of the company’s oral COVID-19 antiviral treatment, Paxlovid.
Paxlovid is an antiviral medication used to treat high-risk people, such as older patients.
Mr Bourla has received four doses of the vaccine his company developed alongside its German partner BioNTech – but said he missed out on getting the new bivalent booster due to contracting the disease in recent months.
“I’ve not had the new bivalent booster yet, as I was following CDC guidelines to wait three months since my previous COVID case which was back in mid-August,” Mr Bourla added.
Developed by Moderna and the team of Pfizer and BioNTech, the new so-called bivalent shots aim to tackle the BA.5 and BA.4 Omicron subvariants, which make up 84.8% and 1.8%, respectively, of all circulating variants in the United States, based on latest data.
