Novavax, Tai discuss jab production acceleration

United States Trade Representative (USTR) Katherine Tai and Novavax Inc. Executive Vice President John Trizzino discussed on Tuesday the options for accelerating the production of the company's vaccine against COVID-19.

The official statement on the meeting noted that Tai stressed to Trizzino that President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris' administration's "top priority is saving lives and ending the pandemic" and "explained her commitment to working on a global response to COVID-19."

Earlier this week, Tai had a similar encounter with Pfizer Inc. Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Albert Bourla. Prior to that, GlaxoSmithKline PLC (GSK) announced it will support Novavax's efforts to produce 60 million doses of its vaccine.
