(KSL News) Hundreds of Utahns are getting their flu shots in a less painful way starting this weekend.

The Salt Lake Valley health department says this new Bioject 2000 technology will speed up the vaccine process and help them reach a larger number of people. The device uses carbon dioxide to propel vaccine into a person, and it's needleless.

Audrey Stephenson/ Salt Lake Valley Health Dept.: "The flu vaccine is very important in preventing a pandemic flu event in our community. The more individuals that have the flu vaccine, the safer the community is."
