Scientists at the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology have just unveiled a new technology that could change the world and save millions (billions?) of lives. The Nanopatch is an alternative vaccine delivery system that induces the same protective immune response as a needle/syringe delivery, but with 100 times less vaccine used.

This has enormous implications. Vaccine amounts are often very limited in 3rd world countries. This will allow them to spread out their doses over many, many more people. The nanopatch is painless and needle-free, which should make more people willing to use it and reduce trauma to children. The nanopatch also eliminates the need for immune stimulants or multiple vaccinations.

Best of all, the nanopatch does not require any training or skill to use. One person can just slap it on another. This is absolutely revolutionary in terms of vaccine distribution.
