“With U.K. data showing that people infected with both COVID-19 and the flu are more than five times as likely to die, it’s more important than ever to consider any vaccine offered by the National Health Service,” NVAX CEO Stanley Erck said in a statement.

The Novavax vaccine uses more conventional technology than the mRNA-based ones developed by Pfizer (PFE), BioNTech (BNTX), and Moderna (mRNA). Premarket shares were up 4.4% but have fallen 87% year to date, while the S&P 500 has fallen 23%.
