Australian government examines possibility of establishing mRNA vaccine manufacturing facility in Australia

The Australian government is assessing proposals to establish a large-scale mRNA vaccine manufacturing facility in Australia. There have been more than a dozen proposals after the government called for applications.

In the short term, the production of a domestic mRNA vaccine is likely to hinge on producing the Moderna vaccine, as Pfizer has confirmed it has no current plans to manufacture vaccines in Australia.

There is also no current facility that could manufacture these vaccines in Australia.
