It is equipped with microneedles, and inside it placed the capsules small size, in which there is a vaccine.

In addition, the plaster surface is covered with disinfectant and analgesic substances. Thus, pain will be minimal.

The only thing you need to do is just apply the patch to the most convenient place and carry it there for 24 hours.
