Vaccines without puncture. Messina is the first city in Europe that will use an innovative method to administer anti-covid vaccines: the technology, already used in the USA, Australia and India, consists of a high-speed jet that completely replaces the use of the needle, therefore of the traditional puncture, and guarantees total absorption of the vaccine intramuscularly. The CE certified Comfort-in medical device is designed for subcutaneous or intramuscular administration of medicinal substances. The simplicity and absolute safety make it ideal for any type of infusion with important advantages for the patient, especially for those who suffer from agophobia.
Comfort-in is a fast, painless and safe device as it eliminates the risk of accidental punctures, protecting the healthcare professional. The ‘device’ uses the ‘nozzle’: a real syringe, without needle, sterile and disposable, capable of injecting the vaccine into the arm through a 0.15mm micro hole that projects the drug into the human body in less than 100 milliseconds. . The initiative, which adds to and does not replace the classic administration of vaccines with syringe and needle, allows the use of different types of vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, Janssen, Astrazeneca) and will be illustrated tomorrow, at 11.30, during a press conference. in the Fiera di Messina hub by the Covid emergency commissioner Alberto Firenze, by the acting general manager of the Messina Provincial Health Authority Dino Alagna and by Arturo Maravigna, head of the Gamastech company (www.gamastech.com), who supplied the device of which it is the exclusive distributor for Europe.
