- 2021 If you don’t have the Covid vaccine you can’t work in a care home.
- 2023 if you don’t have smart vaccine …..
The first coronavirus vaccine ‘smart patch’ is being developed at Swansea university, researchers say.
The disposable device uses micro-needles to both administer the vaccine and monitor its efficacy by measuring the body’s immune response.
A prototype will be developed by the end of March in the hope it can be put forward for clinical trials.
Swansea University researchers aim to make the device commercially available within three years.
The project received Welsh Government and European funding as part of the global response to the pandemic, though it it hoped it can be used to treat other infectious diseases.
