Johnson & Johnson

Founded in 1886, Johnson & Johnson is one of the oldest pharmaceutical companies in the country. Known for developing medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and consumer packaged goods, J&J is home to well-known products including Band-Aid bandages, Tylenol pain medications, Neutrogena skin and body products, and Acuvue contact lenses. Johnson & Johnson maintains operations in 60 countries, while its roughly 250 subsidiaries and their products are sold in more than 175 countries. During the coronavirus pandemic, Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine was the third to receive emergency use authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Additionally, J&J’s vaccine was the first to be okayed in the U.S. that required only a single dose, and its administration into the arms of Americans significantly helped the country curb the spread of the virus and get back on a path to normalcy.
