Moderna Pledges to Supply up to 500 Million Vaccine Doses to COVAX

Moderna will supply COVAX with up to 500 million doses of its coronavirus vaccine starting at the end of the year, the U.S. drugmaker announced Monday, just as Sweden pledged it would send 1 million doses via the vaccine-sharing mechanism.

Under the deal, Moderna will work with Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, to supply 34 million doses to COVAX — a mechanism established with the World Health Organization and Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) to provide vaccines for low- and middle-income countries — in late 2021.

The vaccines will be offered at Moderna’s “lowest tiered price,” and Gavi will be able purchase an additional 466 million doses in 2022.
