Officials are working closely with VMIC and other third parties to ensure that the UK retains a strong domestic vaccine manufacturing capability to contribute to our response to COVID-19 and resilience to other future health emergencies. We believe VMIC will play an important role in the UK’s vaccine ecosystem. At present, these discussions are commercially sensitive.
