Australian biotech CSL commits to production of AstraZeneca's COVID - 19 vaccine into 2022

Oct 14 Reuters - Australian biotech CSL said on Thursday it was committed to its agreement for the production of about 50 million doses of AstraZeneca's COVID - 19 vaccine into 2022.

The announcement came after a media report said that the British drugmaker's vaccine, Vaxzevria, will no longer be manufactured in Australia due to demand for vaccines of Pfizer and Moderna.

Pfizer and Moderna have established a market dominance by using mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccine technology to fight the pandemic.

CSL, in a short statement https: www.CSL.org.

Cafes, gyms and restaurants in Sydney welcomed back fully vaccinated customers earlier this week after nearly four months of lockdown, as Australia aims to begin living with coronavirus and gradually reopen with high rates of vaccination.
