This looks promising. My aunt's boyfriend mentioned it to me and sent me a url. I said my aunt should look into investing a bit of money in them. This really could change how we get vaccines, I believe.

FTFA: Needle shots typically need to be administered by trained professionals and have to be stored in freezers or refrigerators. However, vaccine patches have the vaccine embedded in the patch, which means that the vaccine can be self-administered and does not require any special storage units.

How does putting the vaccine in the patch eliminate the need for proper refrigeration prior to administration?
