The Department of Health and Human Services today announced that it will partner with the Department of Defense to fund the advanced development — including clinical trials and large-scale manufacturing — of a COVID-19 investigational vaccine from Sanofi and GlaxoSmithKline.

The investment is expected to yield 100 million fill-finished doses, meaning vaccine doses are packaged and ready to ship immediately if clinical trials are successful and the Food and Drug Administration authorizes its use.
