The Oxford AstraZeneca University COVID-19 vaccine will begin manufacturing in Australia this week

The COVID-19 vaccine has not yet received clinical approval, but doses will start manufacturing in Australia this week.

CSL confirmed Sunday that it will start manufacturing the coronavirus vaccine at the University of Oxford / AstraZeneca in Victoria, starting Monday.

The ASX-listed biotech company has separate contracts with AstraZeneca and the federal government to manufacture nearly 30 million doses of the AZD1222 vaccine.

The first doses are scheduled to be launched in the first half of 2021, pending clinical trial outcome and regulatory approval.

The vaccine will not be released for use until clinical trials and relevant manufacturing data are reviewed and approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration.
