Needle-free Injection – Eradicating Diseases to Improve Global Health

Needle-free injection technology has evolved significantly
over the last 50 years and is now accepted in many routine
immunisation settings as a safe and effective vaccine
delivery method. Disposable syringe jet injectors are now
being used for the delivery of vaccines to eradicate polio,
MMR, and influenza, and are showing promising results in
vaccine clinical trials for the Zika virus and HPV. In her paper,
Dr Erin Spiegel of PharmaJet shows that these devices are
fast, safe, and easy to use, with most providers trained in
less than 20 minutes.
