Biovac is a bio-pharmaceutical company based in Cape Town that is the result of a
partnership formed with the South African government in 2003 to establish local vaccine
manufacturing capability for the provision of vaccines for national health management and

Our vision and mission is to establish sustainable world class international African vaccine
manufacturing capability by contributing to protecting life through the development,
manufacture and supply of much needed and vaccines and other biologicals.

Biovac aims to ensure that the country has the required domestic capacity to respond to both local and regional vaccine needs. As the only Southern African human vaccines manufacturer, we recognise the need for a domestic manufacturer of vaccines to enable the Southern African region to respond to regional epidemics and vaccine-preventable diseases.
