Clinical Study Published in The Lancet Supports Flu Shots Administered with PharmaJet’s Needle-Free Injector

The Lancet recently published a study that demonstrates that the delivery of an influenza vaccine with the PharmaJet Needle-Free Jet injector compares favorably to a traditional needle and syringe delivery. This is the first definitive non-inferiority study to measure the immune responses to all three influenza viruses induced after administration of a seasonal flu vaccine by a jet injection device as compared to a needle and syringe.

Survey of Satisfaction with Needle-Free Administration of Afluria®, Influenza Vaccine (AMCP poster)

In the fall of 2014, nearly 400 individuals were surveyed about their experience receiving a PharmaJet Stratis® Needle-Free flu shot during the University of Tennessee Flu Shot day. Subjects were overwhelmingly accepting and the data suggests that needle-free vaccination through jet injection may be widely accepted in the general adult population and expand vaccination rates.
