Bavarian Nordic the only bidder for Canada's smallpox vax supply

Canada has invited Danish company Bavarian Nordic--and only Bavarian Nordic--to bid for a tender to supply it with smallpox vaccines, according to Reuters. The tender, expected to close later this month, includes the delivery of 45,700 doses of the company's Imvamune vaccine before March 31 of next year, with an additional option of 314,300 doses. "This is a short tender. We're confident this will go through," CEO Paul Chaplin told the news service. Report
