The FDA released at statement on October 21, 2011 about the use of the jet injector for any vaccine other than MMR. The device does not use needles to deliver the vaccine. Several large pharmacies throughout the US had planned to begin using the jet injection method. However, the FDA says that the safety and efficacy of the jet injector has not been properly tested and approved for use with the flu vaccine. The FDA is concerned that the characteristics of the vaccine will be altered by the use of traditional alternate delivery methods. Makers of the jet injectors, such as Colorado based company PharmaJet, have expressed confusion about this statement saying that they believed they had clearance for use of the device under certain circumstances. Additionally, the first human research study of the flu vaccine delivered by the jet injector system was published in early October. According to the report found to be safe and response was much like the traditional needle-syringe method.
