Children Can Now Take Their Vaccines In One Jab

Children can now have all their vaccines in a single injection.
According to BBC news, a technology can now delivered eventually all childhood vaccines has been developed by US researchers.
Their one-shot solution stores the vaccine in microscopic capsules that release the initial dose and then boosters at specific times.
The approach has been shown to work in mouse studies, described in the journal Science.
The researchers say the technology could help patients around the world.
Childhood immunisations come with tears and screams. And there are a lot of them.
• Diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, polio, Hib and hepatitis B at eight, 12 and 16 weeks.
• Pneumococcal jab at eight weeks, 16 weeks and one year
• Men B vaccine at eight weeks, 16 weeks and one year
• Hib/Men C vaccine at one year
Measles, mumps and rubella at one year and three years and four months
Prof Robert Langer, from MIT, said: “We are very excited about this work.
“For the first time, we can create a library of tiny, encased vaccine particles, each programmed to release at a precise, predictable time, so that people could potentially receive a single injection that, in effect, would have multiple boosters already built into it.
“This could have a significant impact on patients everywhere, especially in the developing world.”
