The JYNNEOS brand name was developed by Brand Institute and pays homage to Edward Jenner, a British physician and scientist who created the world's first vaccine, which was indicated for the prevention of smallpox. JYNNEOS was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2019 for the prevention of smallpox and monkeypox disease in adults 18 years of age and older determined to be at high risk for smallpox or monkeypox infection.

"Congratulations to our great client, Bavarian Nordic, for this recognition from TIME Magazine," said Steffen Lorenz, President of Brand Institute's Office in Frankfurt, Germany.
