Hello all, yes, this topic was indeed started by the one who plans to get vaccinated then tell the masses via ATS just what it is like. Apparently
I'll be getting the GSK variety not the Baxter or Novartis.
Not to fan any flames here, I just found an old copy of the Globe and Mail from July 17 showing some interesting information.
GlaxoSmithKline has plants in Dresden, Germany and Ste-Foy, Quebec. They have an exclusive supply contract with Canada to provide enough doses for
every citizen. This contract was created in 2001, before GSK purchased a small pharmaceutical company that had legally agreed to provide vaccines for
Canada in the event of a pandemic. The company also has contracts with Britain for 60 million doses, France for 50 million, Belgium for 12.6 million,
and Finland for 5.3 million. Our past Liberal party leadership gave them enough money to increase production capacity in the Ste-Foy plant to allow
excess doses to be shipped to foreign governments.
Novartis grows their vaccines in cell cultures at a plant in Marburg, Germany. It also has plants that make it using eggs in Liverpool, Britain and
Siena, Italy. They haven't declared any clients but claim 30 countries have expressed interest.
Sanofi-Aventis has two facilities, one in Swiftwater, Pennsylvania while the other is in Lyon, France. The American plant was given funds to expand in
the past (pre-Obama admin) so that it could provide vaccines directly to the USA.
Baxter produces its vaccines in Bohumile, Czech Republic and will fill and finish it in Vienna, Austria. They are providing 80 million doses to
Britain, Ireland, New Zealand, and two other not disclosed.
CSL has a major manufacturing plant in Parkville, Australia. The only one of its kind in the entire Southern Hemisphere. They are going to roll out 10
million doses in July or August. They also have a $180 million contract with the US.
Sinovac Biotech will handle the production and supply of vaccines to China. It has two plants with one in Beijing while the other is in Tangshan.
China has only invested an order for 4 million doses but is likely to order an additional 10 million before ordering more.

Very interesting. Seems like if NAU pops up out of all this it will be Canada leading it. Well there goes the risk of NAU declaring war on many other
