In a rather noteworthy development, the folks over at Emergent BioSolutions have bagged a hefty contract worth a remarkable $235.8 million.

Their mission? Supplying anthrax vaccine solutions to the US military.

The bigwigs at the US Department of Defense dished out this contract, which involves peddling Emergent’s fancy-sounding BioThrax vaccine adsorbed products.

These, my friends, are touted as the go-to pre-exposure prophylaxis against anthrax.

The gig spans a leisurely five years, with an optional extension available until 2033.

Now, let’s dive into the nitty-gritty of this contract and wander down the historical boulevard of anthrax, a bacteria with a knack for stirring up trouble, apparently.
