Biden administration warns Moderna to “step up” global vaccine supply

The federal government is demanding Moderna provide enough vaccines to the global initiative COVAX, at not-for-profit prices, a top federal official said during a panel event today.

What they’re saying: “We expect that Moderna will step up as a company,” David Kessler, the Biden administration’s chief science officer of the COVID-19 response, said, adding Moderna has additional capacity to meet these demands. “Failure to do that would be unconscionable in my view.”

“These companies understand our authorities and understand we would not be afraid to use them,” he added.
