It’s day 8 of the Don't Get Stuck challenge.

Technological advances can make it safer to draw blood, vaccinate, or heal wounds. Use non-sharp equipment whenever possible. 
 

  • Non-sharp skin closure devices, including liquid adhesives, adhesive strips, staples, or zipper technologies 
  • Immunizations that allow for the use of nasal sprays or a mechanism other than a needle and syringe
  • New blood sampling devices that do not require a needle
