Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Canada will be producing vaccines to battle COVID-19.

According to Trudeau, Precision NanoSystems and Novavax will be manufacturing COVID-19, protein based vaccines in the future.

“This is a major step forward to get vaccines made in Canada for Canadians,” Trudeau told reporters at a press conference outside of Rideau Hall.

The Novavax vaccine will eventually be manufactured at the National Research Council’s new Biologics Manufacturing Centre at its Royalmount site in Montreal.

The council received a $126 million investment in August 2020, and once construction is completed the facility will be capable of producing 24 million doses per year.
