Our Mission.

Our mission is to make the world a better and safer place by developing vaccines against common viral infections that hold out the promise of providing stronger, broader and more durable protection and, because they come in the form of a small pill, would also be quicker and less expensive to distribute.

Our vaccine pills may be able to overcome the public anxiety caused by fast-spreading infections like COVID-19, address the huge challenges posed by mass vaccination of entire populations, and eliminate the expense, inequity and environmental harm caused by cold-chain storage and distribution of injectable vaccines.

By providing a potentially superior solution to the global challenge posed by infectious viral diseases, Vaxart’s transformative vaccine pills can be the center of a new movement to make the world a better and safer place in which to live.
