New flu shot with a short needle
NEW YORK (WABC) -- There's a new option for this year's flu vaccine for people who hate needles.
Instead of the usual inch-long needle, there's a new type of shot that works with a needle that's just one-tenth of an inch long.
It injects the vaccine just below the skin's surface.
It's so brand new, it may be hard to find.
The short shot is also just for 18 to 64 year olds.
If you don't like needles, there are still other options like nasal sprays.
