One day your annual flu shot could come in the mail.
At least that's the hope of researchers developing a new method of vaccine delivery that people could even use at home: a patch with microneedles.
That's right, tiny little needles so small you don't even feel them. Attached to a patch like a Band-Aid, the little needles barely penetrate the skin before they dissolve and release their vaccine.
Medical Daily: Microneedles may make getting flu shots easier
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
God I hate needles. I turn away, but hate them.
