Australia poised to seal COVID-19 vaccine deals

The Federal Government is ramping up efforts to secure supply in 2021

Australian vaccine manufacturer CSL is currently in talks with the Federal Government about producing the University of Oxford’s promising coronavirus vaccine at its Melbourne plant.

The company, which has already partnered with the University of Queensland to help bring its protein subunit vaccine to market, now says it’s exploring whether it could simultaneously make both vaccines for domestic use.

This follows confirmation from Federal Minister for Health Greg Hunt that the government is close to striking a deal
