Have needles got you dreading your next trip to the doctor’s office or hesitating to get that annual flu shot? If so, this new advancement in vaccine technology may change your mind.
The Nanopatch is an innovative, needle-free alternative to the standard method of vaccine injection, currently being developed by the Australian vaccine company, CSL. These small patches can be placed on the skin, where the vaccine will be dissolved through high-pressure inoculation. The nanopatch is still in its trial stages at the moment, but if all goes well it could hit the market in the next five years.
Considering today’s declining immunization rates, the development of this cheaper, more efficient, and pain-free alternative to the standard vaccine is more important than ever.
