The Government has confirmed millions of doses of a coronavirus vaccine could be produced in Teesside in the coming months if a trial is successful.

The Government has reached an agreement with Novavax to make the vaccine at Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies in Billingham if the clinical trials are successful.

Tees Valley mayor, Ben Houchen, said: ‘It has been fantastic to work with Fujifilm to ensure the government has reached this agreement with them. They are doing fantastic work in our hugely important bioscience sector, creating the skilled jobs we need and leading the way on innovation, and there’s no bigger project across the world right now than creating and manufacturing a coronavirus vaccine.

’This will be the only place in the whole country where this vaccine will be manufactured, and it will be done in Teesside. It is a fantastic coup for our area and shows once again the potential and the talent we have in the region.’

Fujifilm are currently building a new BioCampus at its Billingham site.
