No place on earth is to be spared from the Great Reset, and the African countries have been falling behind on their vax targets.
These people need massive vax factories, and they need them now.
Moderna announced on Thursday it plans to spend up to $500 million building a vaccine factory in Africa, capable of producing up to 500 million doses of mRNA vaccines a year – including, but not limited to, coronavirus vaccines.
“While we are still working to increase capacity in our current network to deliver vaccines for the ongoing pandemic in 2022, we believe it is important to invest in the future. We expect to manufacture our COVID-19 vaccine as well as additional products within our mRNA vaccine portfolio at this facility,” said Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel.
Moderna’s statement indicated the country and site of the factory have not been chosen yet, but the process for selecting a site would begin “soon.”
Today, we announced that we will build a state-of-the-art #mRNA facility in Africa to manufacture up to 500 million doses per year. Since our founding in 2010, our mission has been to make a transformative impact on human lives through our medicines: https://t.co/m7EM6FHPhX pic.twitter.com/KXCBWNZUYO

Unnamed health experts told Reuters that South Africa, Rwanda, and Senegal were likely choices. South African officials were evidently unaware of Moderna’s plans until the public announcement was made.
“Moderna and its partners have ramped up capacity worldwide and have supplied more than 500 million doses of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine to date,” the company said. “As recently announced, there are several efforts to continue increasing capacity at a significant pace. This announcement is a new investment aimed at adding a manufacturing site in Africa to Moderna’s expanding global network.”
Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director John Nkengasong told Reuters on Thursday the announcement came as a surprise to him, as he was not consulted by Moderna before it made its decision.
At least the coronavirus vaccines are 100% proven to be safe, so Africans won’t have to worry about any unpleasant side effects.
