How effective is the vaccine sticker?

A sticker coronavirus vaccine created with a 3D printer shows promising results. The scientific publication EurekAlert writes.

Scientists at Stanford University and the University of North Carolina say the vaccine they created showed high immune results in mice against both SARS-CoV-2 and new strains of the coronavirus.

According to the publication, the results of a preclinical study on mice confirmed the effectiveness and simplicity of the method.

The miniature patch consists of thousands of micro protrusions, each of which is approximately 0.25 mm. The drug is rapidly and painlessly released and absorbed into the immune cells beneath the skin surface upon contact with the skin.

"Unlike needles, the patch vaccine causes a stronger and faster immune response," said study co-author David Mueller.

Animal studies and a group of scientists have published that the immune response to vaccine patches is ten times stronger than that of a needle-injected vaccine.
