Preventing Measles, No Needles Required

A new microneedle patch designed at Georgia Tech could make it easier than ever for people to protect against measles. The tiny patch is administered with just the press of a thumb to the skin. Could this be a game changer for vaccines? On Second Thought host Celeste Headlee hears about the technology from GA Tech’s Mark Prausnitz and Rebecca Martin, director of the CDC’s Global Immunization Division.

Listen to On Second Thought weekdays at 9am on your local GPB radio station, listen to past shows on Soundcloud, or follow the show on Facebook.
