Moderna Announces New Supply Agreement for 2023 with Switzerland for Additional Seven Million Doses of Moderna's COVID-19 Booster Vaccine
CAMBRIDGE, MA / ACCESSWIRE / March 21, 2022 / Moderna, Inc. (NASDAQ:MRNA), a biotechnology company pioneering messenger RNA (mRNA) therapeutics and vaccines, today announced a new supply agreement with the Swiss Federal Government for seven million doses of Moderna's COVID-19 booster vaccine for anticipated delivery in 2023 and an additional option of seven million doses for delivery in 2023 and 2024.
These doses are in addition to the seven million doses of Moderna's booster vaccine that are scheduled for supply to Switzerland in the second half of 2022, which the Government exercised its option to purchase in December 2021.
"We thank the Swiss Federal Government for their trust in our mRNA COVID-19 vaccine and for its leadership in preparing for an endemic setting in 2023 and 2024," said Stéphane Bancel, Moderna's Chief Executive Officer. "COVID-19 booster doses will continue to be instrumental in keeping infection rates down in our communities as we continue our fight against the pandemic."
SPIKEVAX (elasomeran mRNA vaccine) has been granted approval by Swissmedic and is indicated for active immunization to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by SARS-CoV-2 in individuals 12 years of age and older.
In 10 years since its inception, Moderna has transformed from a science research-stage company advancing programs in the field of messenger RNA (mRNA), to an enterprise with a diverse clinical portfolio of vaccines and therapeutics across seven modalities, a broad intellectual property portfolio in areas including mRNA and lipid nanoparticle formulation, and an integrated manufacturing plant that allows for rapid clinical and commercial production at scale. Moderna maintains alliances with a broad range of domestic and overseas government and commercial collaborators, which has allowed for the pursuit of both ground-breaking science and rapid scaling of manufacturing. Most recently, Moderna's capabilities have come together to allow the authorized use and approval of one of the earliest and most-effective vaccines against the COVID-19 pandemic.
Moderna's mRNA platform builds on continuous advances in basic and applied mRNA science, delivery technology and manufacturing, and has allowed the development of therapeutics and vaccines for infectious diseases, immuno-oncology, rare diseases, cardiovascular diseases, and auto-immune diseases. Moderna has been named a top biopharmaceutical employer by Science for the past seven years. To learn more, visit www.modernatx.com.
