Evidently DARPA has achieved the milestone of producing 10M vaccine doses in a 1 month period. Such high rates of production could be vital to stemming a pandemic. Seems significant to this non-professional (i.e. I'm not a MD or specialist in any relevant field). I also must add the disclaimer that I am not familiar with this particular website. I stumbled upon the story by accident. But it does cite a source at the bottom of the article.

The Pentagon’s DARPA lab has announced a milestone, but it doesn’t involve drones or death missiles. Scientists at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency say they’ve produced 10 million doses of an influenza vaccine in only one month’s time.


Researchers have before relied on using chicken eggs to harvest compounds to use in influenza vaccines. With a future outbreak requiring scientists to step up with a solution as soon as possible, though, they’ve turned to tobacco plants to help produce the vaccines.
