Swine Flu Vaccine
Is Swine flu vaccine safe for kids? What is the recommended age group? How long is the vaccine effective? Thanks.
Let us understand that swine flu is one of the many strains of influenza virus. It is the same virus that causes common cold and has caused similar previous pandemics (spreading all over the world). Only this time has it got the media attention.
So dont panic. Vaccine is safe and can be used in children more than 6 completed months. Depending on the age the child gets one or two shots in the first year of vaccination and then one shot yearly once.
