GOLDEN, Colo., Oct. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Needle-free flu shots using the PharmaJet Injection System will be offered at workplace health clinics this flu season. Denver International Airport, Cargill, Ernst & Young and Morgan Stanley are among the larger U.S. organizations offering employees flu shots with the PharmaJet needle-free device.
"We are excited to partner with organizations in their efforts to offer an alternative to needles for their employees to ensure a safe and healthy workplace. Last year offering needle-free in workplace health clinics resulted in a double digit percentage increase in employees signing up to participate,1 and 93% said they would choose needle-free again for their next flu shot.2 Participants like the choice of a needle-free flu vaccination, and providers really like the technology," said Ron Lowy, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of PharmaJet, Inc.
