In a St. Joseph Healthscene report, delivering flu vaccine straight into the lungs instead of through routine injections could trigger a far stronger immune response. This method would allow doctors to use a much lower measure of the vaccine, which is important because there's nowhere near as many doses as needed if a flu pandemic hits. Researchers are now working on the best way to actually get the vaccine into the lungs.
