New action with Moderna to make sure Britain is ready for any future pandemic

Today the government announced that Moderna are set to build a state-of-the-art vaccine research and manufacturing centre in the UK, future-proofing the UK against emerging health threats, creating highly skilled jobs and boosting our status as a science superpower.

  • Following the world leading success of Britain's Covid vaccination programme, it is essential to boost our ability to respond to the next pandemic by making sure we are able to produce vaccines rapidly on our own shores.
  • That is why the UK government is entering into a strategic partnership with Moderna to build a global clinical trials base here in the UK – the large manufacturing site will give NHS patients guaranteed access to Covid jabs and next generation of mRNA vaccines and treatments, future-proofing the UK against emerging health threats.
  • This will bring supercharged, home-grown vaccines right to our shores, making the UK the brightest and best in research and technology, creating more jobs and securing our economic future.
