Intradermal vaccine delivery: will new delivery systems transform vaccine administration?

Vaccine. 2008 Jun 19;26(26):3197-208. doi: 10.1016/j.vaccine.2008.03.095. Epub 2008 Apr 22.


There has been a recent resurgence of interest in intradermal vaccine delivery. The physiological advantages of intradermal vaccine delivery have been known for some time, but the difficulties associated with performing an intradermal injection have historically limited its use. New delivery systems currently in development facilitate convenient intradermal vaccination, unlocking the potential advantages of this delivery route, and potentially transforming vaccine delivery.
