New Technology Makes it Easier for System to Force Vaccines on You

At some point in the future, an annual flu shot could be sent to you in the mail.  Researchers are developing a new method of vaccine delivery -- a patch with microneedles.

Microneedles are needles so small you don't even feel them. Attached to a patch like a Band-Aid, they barely penetrate your skin before they dissolve and release vaccine.

According to Medical Daily:

“Some medications are already delivered by patches, such as nicotine patches for people trying to quit smoking. That's simply absorbed through the skin. But attempts to develop patches with the flu vaccine absorbed through the skin have not been successful ... [With microneedles,] the vaccine is still injected.”
