People are receiving their COVID vaccination for free but that may change once the pandemic ends.

A Pfizer executive hinted at the possibility of charging for the vaccine down the road.

Pfizer signed a nearly $2 billion agreement with the government in July to provide 100 million doses.

That order was doubled in December.

Pfizer's chief financial officer said the company will consider pricing opportunities once the pandemic ends and normal market forces are established.
