The site leader at the Pfizer Inc. labs here says about 200 colleagues locally have been so focused on developing a vaccine to battle COVID-19, it's only now sinking in that they were part of a historic effort over the past year that likely saved millions of lives.
"I think we're only now starting to reflect," said John Burkhardt, a senior vice president at Pfizer who runs the company's largest research and development center in Groton, in a phone interview March 5. "When you're going through this, you get this laser-like focus on delivery."
