You should look at recent experiments at immunization using naked
DNA.  I mean you can inject the DNA intramuscularly that contains
the gene of your interest under the control of a expressible 
promoter (doesn't have to be retroviral) and get sufficient expression
in situ.  You may want to take a look at the last years AAAS annual
meeting proceedings if you have them available.  If you need any 
more specific info, let me know.
