A subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, Janssen is a Belgian pharmaceutical company which announced in January 2021 that its single-dose COVID-19 vaccine is 66% effective. As a single-dose jab, the vaccine would be easier to roll out than existing vaccines, and could help boost the international vaccination effort. While the vaccine has yet to be approved by regulators, the UK has already pre-ordered 30 million doses.
Janssen Pharmaceuticals is a pharmaceutical company that researches medical disorders, such as mental illness, neurological disorders and gastrointestinal disorders, for the development of new drugs. Janssen is one of the companies that has created a vaccine for COVID-19, having received $456 million (£342 million) from the U.S. Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority.
