Our COVID-19 response



For over a century, Johnson & Johnson has actively engaged in fighting global outbreaks from TB to HIV and Ebola.

  • Vaccines have been critical in tackling the COVID-19 pandemic and we continue to focus on ensuring our COVID-19 vaccine is available where people are in need.
  • We’re committed to supporting frontline healthcare workers and our communities. We are delivering critical support for communities and health workers on the frontlines. In March, the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies and the Johnson & Johnson Foundation committed $50 million dollars to support frontline health workers—from meals to protective equipment, extra training to mental health.
  • In response to COVID-19, Janssen EMEA, along with our Medical Devices and Consumer Health companies, made $5 million of the $50 million available to support the needs of health workers in the EMEA region through our BacktheFrontline campaign.
