    This flu season, people with a fear of needles have an alternative. A new device made by PharmaJet uses spring tension to produce a high velocity jet of air to deliver medications and vaccines through the skin. Most people coming in for the flu shot at the Andover Senior Center still opted for the standard needle but the new way is gaining popularity. Nearly one third of those getting a vaccine chose the PharmaJet. (Video by Andre Malok/The Star-Ledger)
