multiport syringe tips make vaccines more effective

vaccines have variable efficacy with different length syringe tips Thus syringe tips with different height ports, that is a pipe with a bunch of side channels creates a more effective vaccination

I read a thing at a general medical practice magazine that vaccines have variable efficacy with different length syringe tips 2.5 cm being more effective than 1.6 cm on measured rates of immunity

Thinking on the nature of a pimple the pooled region is unavailable to immune response as a result of pressure as well as geometry

a really effective syringe tip would be multiport or leaky at a few dozen sites from 1 to 2 cm to create a vaccine fluid surface area with more capillary contact to foster immune response

notably vaccine adjuvants are things like absorption minerals or mineral oil that are thought to create a gradualized release or physical area-durable response I think these adjuvants could be adjusted to work well with a multiport syringe tip

during the 1980s it was published that rubella killed a tenth of all of one continent's children Thus it appears that cheaper vaccine as well as more responsive vaccine is of value

       yahbut... wouldn't all the different depths simple pool themselves together ?

       friction would make it hard to insert

       I think you mean needle tip, not syringe tip. You want to spread the stuff out. Multiple fenestrations on a needle would not be a big deal to make. I would like to read the data showing differing efficacy with differing tip length.

       Would it work to just use separate syringes?

       My annotations here keep getting deleted for no obvious reason.   

       Anyway, why not train doctors to inject at the optimal depth with a regular needle, or to draw the needle out as they inject to distibute the vaccine?

       I'm not seeing your annotations come through in the input log, so that problem is a technical one between you and the site, not a social one.

       I thought needles were a thing of the past for vaccinations - aren't transdermal/intercutaneous jets and/or mucosal sprays in common use?

       Ah - curiouser and curiouser, but thanks - I'll quell my paranoia. The first annotation was to say that this was a surprisingly understandable idea for Beany, and had earned my [+] (which I now restore). The second was to point out that my first annotation had vanished.
