NSW to invest in vaccine manufacturing industry focussed on next generation jabs

The Berejiklian government will launch a new vaccine manufacturing and research industry in a bid to invest in the next generation of vaccines. The Premier announced on Tuesday she had assembled a team of scientists looking to get the industry, focused on mRNA vaccines, up and running in 12-24 months. “This is an opportunity for us to lead the way as far as Australia’s concerned in manufacturing, not just a vaccine that’ll deal with COVID, but vaccines and other cures for illnesses,” Premier Gladys Berejiklian said. The NSW government is hoping private sector will help bolster the new industry, but little detail is known around financing. “We already have pockets of excellence but what we need to do is bring it all together.”
