If everything comes together, Denmark may have production capacity for a coronavirus vaccine in place as soon as next year. Danish biotech company Bavarian Nordic announced this in relation to Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen's plan that covid-19 vaccines will be produced on Danish soil in 2022.

Bavarian Nordic and scientists from Copenhagen University are currently devleoping a coronavirus vaccine and plan to initiate a phase II trial before the end of June. Bavarian still needs to raise capital for the final phase III trial, but if both the trials and financing efforts are successful, the vaccine might be ready as soon as next year, notes Bavarian Nordic Vice President Investor Relations & Communications Rolf Sass Sørensen.
