Long-term domestic vaccine manufacturing capability is being considered jointly with the Department of Health and Social Care and Government is working closely with the Bioindustry Association (BIA) to ensure that the UK has the manufacturing capabilities to produce new vaccines at the levels required.

In addition, Government has recently announced £93 million investment to accelerate the launch of the UK’s new Vaccine Manufacturing and Innovation Centre; a facility that will utilise innovative processes to manufacture vaccines at scale.
