Around the country, medical research into finding a vaccine to treat allergies looks promising.

Currently, many people have to undergo rounds of allergy shots that consist of small amounts of the substances to which a person is allergic.
This causes the body to produce antibodies and slowly develop a tolerance.

So dozens of weekly shots could be replaced by just four shots over two weeks.
