Bavarian Nordic A/S, the only company with an approved vaccine for monkeypox, said it’s no longer certain it can meet demand and is talking to multiple production partners as cases rise across the world. 

The Danish company is exploring the possibility of outsourcing some of its production, including a technology transfer to a US contract manufacturer, to meet accelerating demand. Bavarian Nordic “is in conversations with multiple companies to further expand manufacturing capacity globally,” a company spokesperson said in an email.
