Note: the company that developed the vaccine is not always the same as the one which manufactures it.
- Comirnaty is manufactured by Pfizer under license from BioNTech.
- Covishield is manufactured by SII under license from AstraZeneca.
- Covovax is manufactured by SII under license from Novavax.
- Corbevax is manufactured by Biological E under (free) license from Texas Children’s Hospital.
- The NDV-HXP-S vaccines are made under (free) license from the University of Texas at Austin (which developed the 6-proline stabilization) and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (which did everything else).
- Novavax has their own manufacturing and also licensed the vax to Serum Institute of India. They had had problems with manufacturing, so I think that as of Feb 2022, most (all?) of the Novavax that is sold is from SII.
- GEMCOVAC-19’s situation is messy. A Seattle company named HDT Bio licensed its self-amplifying technology to Gennova; Gennova was going to manufacture it worldwide and had exclusive rights to the Indian market, but HDT Bio has sued, saying that Gennova filed patent claims on HDT Bio’s technology.
