Wow -- a New Approach to Vaccines

While the traditionally-developed vaccines used to guard against diseases such as polio and various poxes, have saved millions of lives and prevented suffering, there are significant shortcomings to the traditional vaccine-development approach. Inovio and others are developing DNA-based vaccines that are cheaper to manufacture, safer to give, and last longer, so that you wouldn’t have to get a new flu shot every year.
