Pain-free Vaccines On The Way?

by The Kid's Doctor Staff

Are you tired of the tears in the pediatricians’ office when it comes time to vaccines?  Good news is on the horizon!

Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a patch consisting of microneedles that will administer vaccines virtually pain-free.

The patch consists of tiny microneedles so small you can’t even see them.  Here’s how it works. You place the patch on the skin just like a Band-Aid, the needles barley penetrate the skin before they dissolve and release the vaccine.

The patch feels like sand paper and is currently being tested with flu vaccine.

The researchers say the patch could be available in the next five years.
