About Medicago

  • Is your vaccine approved worldwide?

    Our vaccine is only approved in Canada.

  • When will the vaccine be available?

    Health Canada approved the vaccine on February 24th, 2022. We have several steps to go through before we can make our vaccine available. This overall process will take weeks.

  • How many vaccine candidates does Medicago currently have in development?

    Medicago currently has four vaccine candidates in clinical development.

    Check out our R&D program for more information on these four vaccine candidates.

  • How does Medicago’s vaccine production technology differ from traditional vaccine development?

    Medicago created a plant-based technology that uses plants as bioreactors to produce non-infectious structures of viruses resembling viruses called virus-like particles (VLP).

    VLPs mimic the natural structure of viruses, allowing them to be recognized by the immune system. However, they lack basic genetic material, which makes them non-infectious and incapable of reproducing.

  • Is Medicago a publicly traded company?

    No, Medicago is not publicly traded. It has been privately held since 2013. If you want to learn more about Medicago, follow our journey from the start by watching this video.
