(Natural News) Every year, doctors, employers, schools, and health authorities recommend that children and adults get a flu shot. However, the influenza vaccine has been shown to be highly ineffective and toxic for humans. Over the past couple of years, the word has gone out and fewer than half of all Americans received the flu shot during the 2015-2016 season, reported the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Since an estimated three out of five Americans didn't get their flu vaccination, the industry is on a mission to protect its cash cow by pushing new, painless vaccine patches on the people.
Playing on the fear of needles and the long wait times at the doctor's office, the vaccine industry came up with a new, painless way to administer the flu shot in hopes that it will increase the number of vaccinated people – and their profits.
An influenza vaccine without a needle
Today, most vaccines are delivered by an injection into a muscle. New research, however, suggested that a patch could successfully replace the annual flu jab. As reported by scientists at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, the patch was found to be as effective as a flu shot and it was also preferred by the majority of the patients.
Furthermore, the researchers noted that the patch could be stored outside the fridge for a year, meaning it could easily be distributed to patients by mail to administer to themselves. The patch, which is about one inch in diameter, contains 100 tiny microneedles which pierce the top layer of the skin without causing any pain.
The biodegradable patch can be self-administered by placing it on the wrist for 20 minutes. Since the needles dissolve while they are in the skin there is no danger of passing on blood-borne diseases.
