Press Release: Pfizer and BioNTech to Provide COVID-19 Vaccine Doses for Olympic Athletes at the 2020 Tokyo Games

05/06/2021 | 06:31am EDT
   NEW YORK and MAINZ, GERMANY, May 6, 2021-- 
Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) and 
BioNTech SE (Nasdaq: BNTX) today announced the signing of a Memorandum 
of Understanding (MoU) with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to 
donate the companies' COVID-19 vaccine to help vaccinate athletes, and 
their delegations, participating in the Olympic and Paralympic Games 
Tokyo 2020, which are scheduled to begin on July 23, 2021. 
   Under the MoU, the companies and the IOC will coordinate with National 
Olympic Committees (NOCs) around the world to understand and work to 
help address the local need for vaccine doses for national delegations' 
participation in the Games. Delivery of initial doses to participating 
delegations is expected to begin at the end of May where possible with 
the aim to ensure participating delegations receive second doses ahead 
of arrivals in Tokyo. Under the MoU framework, NOCs and their local 
governments are expected to coordinate the administration of 
vaccinations to eligible Games participants. Doses provided under this 
MoU would be in addition to doses provided under supply agreements with 
governments worldwide. The donation of vaccine doses will not affect the 
supply of the national populations with COVID-19 doses under the supply 
   "This donation of the vaccine is another tool in our toolbox of measures 
to help make the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 safe and secure 
for all participants and to show solidarity with our gracious Japanese 
hosts," said IOC President Thomas Bach. "We are inviting the athletes 
and participating delegations of the upcoming Olympic and Paralympic 
Games to lead by example and accept the vaccine where and when possible. 
By taking the vaccine, they can send a powerful message that vaccination 
is not only about personal health, but also about solidarity and 
consideration of the wellbeing of others in their communities. We would 
like to thank Pfizer and BioNTech for this very generous donation to 
support the vaccination of athletes and Games participants ahead of the 
Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020," he added. 
   During a conversation between Albert Bourla, Chairman and Chief 
Executive Officer, Pfizer, and Suga Yoshihide, Prime Minister of Japan, 
which is the host country of Tokyo 2020, Mr. Bourla made an offer to 
donate the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for athletes and their 
delegations participating in Tokyo 2020. Following this conversation, 
the Japanese government had a meeting with the IOC and now the donation 
plan has been realized. 
   "With hundreds of millions of vaccines already administered, and 
hundreds of millions more to go, Pfizer is committed, together with 
BioNTech, to doing all we can to help end this pandemic and help return 
the world to a sense of normalcy," said Albert Bourla, Chairman and 
Chief Executive Officer, Pfizer. "The return of the Olympic and 
Paralympic Games represents a monumental moment of world unity and peace 
after a grueling year of isolation and devastation. We are proud to play 
a role in providing vaccines to athletes and national Olympic 
   "Providing vaccines to Games participants is one of the critical ways to 
help ensure the Games are as safe and successful as possible. With more 
than 430 million doses already delivered, our vaccine continues to help 
protect lives around the world and bring us back to our normal lives," 
said Ugur Sahin, M.D., CEO and Co-Founder of BioNTech. "This year's 
Olympic and Paralympic Games are an historic moment representing the 
global community and how we stand together. We are honored to be able to 
contribute vaccines to support the safety of the Olympic and Paralympic 
   It is the decision of sovereign States to offer immunization to athletes 
and their delegations in accordance with their local guidance before 
travelling to Japan for the Tokyo Games. The IOC and International 
Paralympic Committee (IPC) have made it clear that vaccination is not 
mandatory in order for athletes to participate in the Olympic and 
Paralympic Games, and that any vaccination program must be conducted in 
full respect of national vaccination priorities.
