In April 2020, GSK joined forces with rival Sanofi in the COVID-19 vaccine development.

As of July 2021, Sanofi and GSK Plc received an approval from the Indian government for a late-stage clinical trial after early-stage results of the vaccine reported a robust immune response. The vaccine is a first of its kind being DNA-based as opposed to RNA-based vaccines. Further, India would also be host to the first foreign COVID-19 vaccine to be conducted within the country
