BURLINGTON, Ontario – September 28, 2021- Yesterday afternoon, Rapid Dose Therapeutics Corp. (“RDT” or the “Company”) (CSE: DOSE) welcomed Premier Doug Ford and Caucus member Stephen Crawford MPP, to their head office and manufacturing facility in Burlington, Ontario and held productive discussions regarding all facets of business.

During the tour, RDT CEO Mark Upsdell and his leadership team shared with the Premier an update into the company’s made-in-Ontario COVID-19 vaccine candidate being investigated in partnership with McMaster University. This study continues to meet increasingly important milestones including the latest results showing a statistically significant immune response following the dosing of the company’s flagship product, QuickStrip™ infused with SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.

Premier Ford was impressed with the tremendous work being done by the staff and their scientific partnerships at the University, including the impressive manufacturing milestones achieved to bring this vaccine to fruition.

“I’m so glad to be visiting RDT today as they announce the latest results from their research done right here in Ontario with McMaster University. I’ve always said that Ontario has some of the best and brightest minds in the world, and RDT is proof of this. This is a made-in-Ontario solution that could change the way vaccines are delivered around the world.”

Premier Ford and the RDT team additionally discussed the importance of job creation and driving additional innovation in the province.

“We were very pleased to have introduced Premier Ford and his ministers to the work we are accomplishing with our novel QuickStrip™ technology, whether it be the manufacturing challenges we needed to solve to continue to facilitate research work and viability as a vaccine for COVID-19 or the innovation we are offering through our nutraceutical products,” said Mark Upsdell, CEO, Rapid Dose Therapeutics. “As our business continues to grow and our research continues to realize important milestones, we look forward to ongoing discussions with the Province of Ontario.”
