Novavax CZ history

After World War I, the first National Institute of Health of the Czechoslovak Republic was established on the grounds of a former agricultural facility in Bohumil. Its goal was to develop and produce serum and vaccines as well as supervise the quality of food and pharmaceuticals. After World War II, the National Institute of Health relocated to Prague and only its serum and vaccine production facility remained in Bohumil, operating under the name of Biogena and later Sevac.

Following the Velvet Revolution, a plasma-processing plant was built in Bohumil. In 2001, the facility was acquired by the American company Baxter and, until 2015, produced flu vaccines using the advanced serum-free Vero cell technology for its European vaccine division. After this, the Cyrus Poonawalia Group purchased the facility from Baxter. In May 2020, the Bohumil facility was acquired by Novavax to expand the manufacturing capabilities and address the immediate need for production of a vaccine against COVID-19.
