After the breakout of the most recent Covid-19 pandemic, medical researchers and scientists are trying to develop new cures and vaccines and technologies that can prevent any huge pandemic from happening again.
Recently, researchers from MIT were able to develop microparticles that can be tuned to deliver vaccines at different time points on your body. They are calling this self-boosting vaccine. According to the research, when the particles are injected into your body, it will be degraded over time and contents will be released at different timelines, thus, no additional appointments needed. Researchers revealed that other than being used for times of pandemic, these particles can also be used for administering childhood vaccinations in regions where people don’t have frequent access to medical care.
This is definitely a great breakthrough for everyone in the medical field. Let’s hope that when this technology is available, it can be made available for everyone.
