Alister Jack – 2021 Comments on Valneva Vaccine

The comments made by Alister Jack, the Secretary of State for Scotland, on 1 February 2021.

This deal is an endorsement of the UK Government’s strategy of investing in vaccine development and in the skills of the Scottish life sciences sector.

I pay tribute to the team in Valneva’s new Livingston manufacturing plant. If the vaccine is authorised by the health regulator, their expertise will play an important role in making the world safer from this virus.
