Pfizer Inc. paid Chief Executive Officer Albert Bourla $21 million in total compensation last year, as the pharmaceutical giant became the first to gain U.S. authorization for a coronavirus vaccine.

The overall pay package, which included salary, bonus, stock and other incentive pay, represented a 17% increase from Bourla’s compensation in 2019, when he was paid a total of $17.9 million, according to a securities filing on Friday.
