One jag is enough

Daily Record - - NEWS -

A MUL­TI­PLE jag could soon pack­age the whole range of child­hood vac­cines in a sin­gle in­jec­tion.

Sci­en­tists in the US are de­vel­op­ing a new method of con­tain­ing vac­cines in mi­cro­scopic “cof­fee cups”, with the con­tents spilling out at spe­cific times as their “lids” de­grade.

Pro­fes­sor Robert Langer, of the Mas­sachusetts In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy, said: “This could have a sig­nif­i­cant im­pact on pa­tients ev­ery­where.”
