Precision Vaccinations | April 14, 2020

Considering the extraordinary humanitarian challenge of ending the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, two leading pharmaceutical companies believe establishing a collaboration is the best tactic for bringing a world-class vaccine. Announced in a joint press release on April 14, 2020, GSK and Sanofi said the ‘global access to COVID-19 vaccines is a priority and are committed to making any vaccine that is developed through the collaboration affordable to the public.’ ‘And through mechanisms that offer fair access for people in all countries.’ This new collaboration marks a significant milestone in Sanofi’s and GSK’s ongoing contributions to help fight COVID-19. The companies have entered into a Material Transfer Agreement to enable them to start working together immediately. Definitive terms of the collaboration are expected to be finalized over the next few weeks.
