Is Vaxiflu-S a safe medicine for treating H1N1?

Q: My four years old daughter is suffering from H1N1. I want to know if Vaxiflu-S is safe for treating H1N1. Can it be given to a four year old child? Is there a better vaccine available in India? Can it be given to adults also?

A:VaxiFlu-S is safe and effective in preventing H1N1 infection in adults over the age of 18 years. However its safety has not been tested in children; hence it is not recommended. There are alternate H1N1 vaccines that may be used in children.
