    Swedish scientists are making COVID-19 vaccines in powder form in an effort to overcome delivery and storage problems.

    They have developed an air-drying process that is far cheaper and easier than freeze-drying.

    It is hoped the process will help developing countries to produce their own vaccine stocks.
