Novavax in Gaithersburg Announces $1.6 Billion Funding 


Novavax—a biotechnology company located in Gaithersburg—has been awarded $1.6 billion to accelerate the development of a potential COVID-19 vaccine.

The company announced Tuesday that it has been selected to participate in Operation Warp Speed. This federal government program will help cover testing, commercialization, and manufacturing of a potential COVID-19 vaccine in the United States. The program aims to start delivering millions of doses of a safe, effective vaccine for COVID-19 in 2021. According to a press release, this grant funding will allow Novavax to complete late-stage clinical development, including a pivotal Phase 3 clinical trial, establish large-scale manufacturing, and deliver 100 million doses of NVX‑CoV2373, Novavax’ COVID-19 vaccine candidate, as early as late 2020.  Montgomery Community Media

I am hopeful a truly beneficial vaccine is created soon.  We continue to lose about 1000 people a day to Covid 19, here in the U.S. 

Thus far a total of 131,000 have died here in this country. That's more than we lost in WW 1, Korean and the Vietnam Wars put together!
