Kári Stefánsson, director of Icelandic Genetics, Már Kristjánsson, chief physician of Landspítali’s infectious diseases department and Þórólfur Guðnason, epidemiologist, meet with scientists from the pharmaceutical company Pfizer at 19 today.
The meeting is expected to last for an hour and some kind of draft agreement will be on the table from the pharmaceutical company after the meeting. .
According to sources in the newsroom, there will be no leaders at the meeting. It is clear that Pfizer has for some time had on its table a proposal for a fourth-phase scientific study of the Pfizer vaccine in Iceland. Þórólfur has not wanted to explain specifically what the proposals entail unless most of the Icelanders are vaccinated in a short time.
Þórólfur said at an information meeting yesterday that there is no information on whether the project will be available and therefore how many doses of vaccines would come to the country or when.
“I can assure everyone that the correct information will be given on this issue soon or immediately after it is available,” said Þórólfur.
Everyone knows that we have come up with a specific proposal for Pfizer, it is being considered there and they are coming up with a draft agreement that has not been reached and then there is nothing more to say about it per se. But as soon as it happens, we naturally first need to start by looking at the contract offers that are there and whether it is acceptable for us and the Icelandic nation and after that it will just be announced, yes or no, “said Þórólfur in yesterday.
Katrín Jakobsdóttir, Prime Minister, says that Icelandic scientists will meet with Pfizer today about a possible fourth phase of the pharmaceutical company’s investigation in this country into its vaccine against Covid – 21.
