The Vaccines Launch Facility

The new facility in Leiden (near Amsterdam) is set up to make a profound, long-term contribution to global health. The facility is constructed for production of late-stage (Phase 3) clinical trial supplies for Janssen’s current investigational vaccines, including vaccines targeting HIV, Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), Ebola, and a universal Influenza vaccine.

Pending regulatory approvals, the facility will also be ready to manufacture the first batches of these vaccines for real-world use.



The opening event will take place at the Corpus Congress Centre, located only 500 meters away from the new Vaccines Launch Facility.


Willem Einthovenstraat 1, 2342 BH Oegstgeest, the Netherlands.
