The Future of Vaccinations
"Researchers at MIT have come up with a method to create 'super effective' DNA vaccines by relying on an array of microscopic plastic needles that measure a mere 250 microns wide and 650 microns high, and if you were to compare it to the average human hair, it measures roughly 100 microns wide.The microneedles in action can disrupt only the most superficial layers of the skin while avoiding nerve endings and blood vessels, rendering them painless to deliver the vaccine compared to hypodermic needles."
Just in time, too, because I'm tired of 13 year old boys crying like little girls just before I gave them this year's flu shot. I'm not kidding. I had multiple little girls aged 8-12 roll up their sleeve and bravely take the flu shot this year, but two 13 year old boys cried. Jeez. Really?
Check out the PAINLESS VACCINATION.
