Is it true that Pfizer CEO, Albert Bourla, had to cancel a planned trip to Israel because he was not fully vaccinated?
Take a look at this bizarre claim by a Newsmax journalist, and find out what the FACTS really are!
Newsmax Journo : Pfizer CEO Still Not Fully Vaccinated!
On 5 August 2021, Emerald Robinson – the White House correspondent for Newsmax – claimed that Pfizer CEO, Albert Bourla had to cancel a planned trip to Israel, because he was not fully vaccinated.
She added for effect – “Let me repeat: BECAUSE HE WAS NOT VACCINATED.”
It seems obvious that Emerald was trying to imply that even Pfizer’s CEO is reluctant to get vaccinated with his company’s own COVID-19 vaccine.
The CEO of Pfizer had to cancel a planned trip to Israel because he was not fully vaccinated.
Let me repeat: BECAUSE HE WAS NOT VACCINATED.

Truth : Pfizer CEO Is Fully Vaccinated
Emerald Robinson is supposed to be a trained journalist, who is supposed to fact check or confirm the story before posting it.
However, her claim that Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla is not fully vaccinated is FALSE. Here are the facts…
Fact #1 : Pfizer CEO, Albert Bourla, Is Fully Vaccinated
Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla received his first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine in mid February 2021, and his second shot on 10 March 2021.
Excited to receive my 2nd dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech #COVID19 vaccine. There's nothing I want more than for my loved ones and people around the world to have the same opportunity. Although the journey is far from over, we are working tirelessly to beat the virus. pic.twitter.com/ES05WPBLJA

Fact #2 : Jerusalem Post Article Was From March 2021
The Jerusalem Post article that Emerald Robinson quoted is genuine, but was posted on 7 March 2021 – a few days before Bourla received his second shot.
It is bizarre that, as a professional journalist, she was not aware that Bourla had already received his second Pfizer shot in March 2021.
It’s even more bizarre that she did not notice the date when she read the article.
But it is possible, albeit unprofessional, that she did not read the article, only its title, before retweeting it with her comments.
Fact #3 : Emerald Robinson Refused To Admit Her Mistake
Even though she knew she was wrong, Emerald Robinson declined to post a correction, or admit that she was wrong. She only posted an “update” :
It’s a shame that she not only kept her fake tweet up, she only posted an update, not a correction.
But at least you know that what she posted was FAKE NEWS. Share this out, so other people won’t get fooled!
