Clinical trial data used in FDA’s approval of the jet injector (i.e., the PharmaJet Stratis Needle-Free Injector used with the previous trivalent AFLURIA®) demonstrated that vaccination using this jet injector method provided a non-inferior (i.e., similar) level of immune protection compared to the same flu vaccine administered via traditional flu shot.
