Merck (MRK) is licensing the experimental skin-patch vaccination developed by Australia's Vaxxas to further fund research, including human tests, Vaxxas says. The Nanopatch system could protect against disease with only a small percentage of antigens required in needle-based vaccination, and might be cheaply manufactured and even mailed out in case of a flu pandemic.

    I hate needles.....patch sounds much more civilized and certainly less invasive. May not even have to go to bacteria infested doctor's off ice to get a flu shot.
    I sleep so well at night owning MRK.
