>>> it is now possible to see the day when a skin patch could replace the flu shot . just as stick-on so-called trans dermal patches are used to deliver pain meds and contraception, a new patch will allow this to painlessly flow through the skin and into the system. researchers believe it will not only save patients money but should also greatly increase the number of people getting flu vaccines. right
