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.

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.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

God I hate needles. I turn away, but hate them.

Couldn't this be huge news for diabetics?

Edited because I'm guessing not, as how much insulin one takes is dependent on BS levels.
