Pfizer and Merck are developing a vaccine for pertussis, which causes severe cough, fever and pneumonia, to be sold under the Pfizer brand name.
The vaccine would also be sold by the Merck brand.
In a press release, Pfizer said it has been “in the market for the next vaccine for more than a year and we are now in the final stages of selecting the right partners to support the development of this vaccine.”
The Pfizer-Merck vaccine will be marketed under the brand name Pfizer, which Pfizer says is more accurate and more accurate-sounding than the generic name Pfitz.
Pfizer has not announced the price for the vaccine, but Merck says it will be “price competitive” with other vaccines.
“This vaccine will provide a broad-spectrum, multi-dose, high-quality pertussia vaccine to the global public,” the Merksaid.
The Merck vaccine has not yet been approved for use in the United States.
The Pfizer vaccine is expected to cost $400 per dose, while the Mercksaid says it would cost $500.
The Merck-Pfizer vaccine was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use as a single dose on adults and children under age 12 in November 2017.
In October, the FDA also approved the Pfitz-Merksaid vaccine to treat pertussias in adults and young children, which are the same age group as the pertusses.
The Pfitz vaccine is now under consideration by the CDC and the World Health Organization for use to treat young children who are younger than 6.
According to the Pfizers release, the Pfisers vaccine is “designed to reduce the number of adverse reactions associated with pertussium vaccine.”
The vaccine is not yet available for sale by the Pfozes vaccine provider.
