Back in August, UK biotech firm Scancell announced plans to test its Covid vaccine in clinical trials, also using a needle-free device.
But, slightly different to Enesi’s needle-free technology, Scancell’s device actually penetrates the skin through a stream of fluid in a tenth of a second.
The UK’s rate of vaccinations has slowed down over the last few months.
Experts now believe that the introduction of needle-free jabs may help convince some vaccine sceptics to change their minds and decide to take up the vaccine – to help reduce the rate of coronavirus infections.
Health secretary Savid Javid today urged the public to get vaccinated and take precautions.
