Vaccines of Astrazeneca will be imported to Japan from the U.S. and Europe in a fully-prepared form, except for 9,000 doses that need formulations and fills. KM Biologics will use its facility to produce flu vaccines for those tasks and continue its vaccine development against the new coronavirus. Source: KM biologics / Kumanichi
