By using laser light to increase the effectiveness of flu shots, it may be possible to find an alternative to the chemicals currently used to give the shot a boost.
Currently, flu shots contain chemicals that trigger the body's immune response in order to improve shot's effectiveness. Targeting the injection site with a low-power laser will also trigger a powerful immune response that will be more reliable than the chemical versions, and without side effects.
