Johnson & Johnson scientists are fast at work on a potential vaccine for Covid-19 that our company plans to provide on a not-for-profit basis.

It's a decision that underscores our company's deep commitment to its 77-year-old mission statement, known as Our Credo, which states that Johnson & Johnson's "first responsibility is to the patients, doctors and nurses, to mothers and fathers and all others who use our products and services. In meeting their needs everything we do must be of high quality."

That commitment permeates the decisions that Gorsky makes both inside and outside our company, especially during this coronavirus pandemic.
