Virtually Painless Intradermal Flu Vaccine

Sanofi has recently received FDA approval for its Fluzone Intradermal flu vaccine system. The device, approved for ages 18-64, uses a microinjection needle that is 90% smaller than regular needles and delivers the vaccine directly into the upper layers of the skin where there are an abundance of immune cells. A shielding system covers the needle, preventing its reuse and helping to provide protection for both the patient and caregiver.
