World Economic Forum Spotlights Micron’s Dissolvable Microneedles and the Opportunity to Increase Vaccine Uptake

November 23, 2023

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has given $23.6 million to help fund the mass production of needle-free vaccine technology. Life science company Micron Biomedical uses dissolvable microneedles on a patch-like device to deliver the vaccine. It is hoped that this technology will help increase vaccine uptake as it is simpler to transport and administer than traditional vaccines.
