Tobacco--a Highly Efficient Producer of Vaccines — "increased interest in tobacco as a high-efficient producer of vaccines not only of specialistic biotechnology firms but also a big pharmaceutical corporation and a department of defence."  https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/21360963/  1/2

2/2 This might be a moral challenge in that the world of vaccines is a small tight knit community of NGOs, government, and philanthropies who have shunned the tobacco companies from being involved in anything for years. Will/should this change if they can make millions of doses?
