COVID-19: European Commission publishes contract between Sanofi-GSK and European Commission

The European Commission, on 9 February 2021, published the contract it had signed with Sanofi-GSK on 18 September 2020 (see Legal update, COVID-19: European Commission formally signs contract with Sanofi-GSK for purchase of vaccine). The Commission considers publication of the contract important, because transparency will improve accountability on the effectiveness and safety of the vaccines purchased at the EU level.

The Sanofi-GSK contract is the third one to be published, after CureVac and AstraZeneca agreed to publish their Advance Purchase Agreements with the Commission. The Commission is working with companies in view of publishing all contracts under the Advance Purchase Agreements in the near future.
