    We are one of the world’s largest vaccines companies, delivering vaccines that help protect people at all stages of life.

    Our R&D focuses on developing vaccines against infectious diseases that combine high medical needs and strong market potential.

    Our Vaccines business has a portfolio of more than 20 vaccines to help protect people from a range of diseases throughout their lives.

    We supply these vaccines to people living in over 160 countries. We have a pipeline of 17 candidate vaccines in development at FY 2020, including three for the prevention of Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV).

    In October 2017, our shingles vaccine, Shingrix, received regulatory approval in Canada and the US.

    The business generated sales of £7 billion in 2020. Our strategy is to bring differentiated and high-quality vaccines to as many people as possible.

    To achieve this, we focus on creating a strong patient and payer-focused pipeline, maintaining valuable partnerships with our local operating countries, and ensuring sustainable access and affordability.

    The vaccines in our portfolio have been helping protect people from serious disease for over 100 years, with our Marietta (US) site dedicated to smallpox vaccine production since 1882.

    Today, our vaccines continue to tackle some of the world’s most devastating diseases, including pneumococcal disease, meningitis, hepatitis, rotavirus, whooping cough, and influenza.

    Innovation is the beating heart of our business. There will be no new vaccines for the many diseases that still threaten individuals, families, and communities worldwide without it.

  • Our R&D organisation brings together expertise in virology, bacterial infection, and different adjuvant platforms. We now have three global R&D hubs : Rockville, USA (new in 2015);
  • Rixensart, Belgium, and Siena, Italy, which are focused on discovering and developing novel vaccines across a range of pressing public health threats.

    We concentrate our efforts on those possible vaccines that may offer significant improvements over existing options or target diseases for which no vaccines exist.

    Our approach is to make the most of our expertise while forming complementary partnerships and alliances with others who bring different knowledge and experience.

    Our vision for the world, where everyone has access to the vaccines they need, depends on a steady supply of great ideas and excellent science.
