Institute of Immunology given licence to produce viral vaccines

Croatia's Agency for Medicinal Products and Medical Devices (HALMED) on Thursday reported that it had granted licences to the Institute of Immunology (IMZ) for certain segments of the production of viral vaccines.

The Institute of Immunology meets conditions of good production practice for some segments of manufacturing viral vaccines, according to the press release issued on HALMED's web site.

HALMED is still conducting procedures for the issuance of licences for manufacturing medicines derived from human blood or plasma and from animal serum and for manufacturing bacterial vaccines.

Last month, the government allocated 32.5 million kuna from the state budget for the resumption of production in the Institute and Health Minister Dario Nakic is hopeful that production will resume this year.
