Hi Taruna, Shivani. here's your concern about the vaccine answered. this has been answered by a paediatrician. The productive efficacy of the vaccination is about 87% and it works better for children aged 5 years and less, and adults over 50. For others it may or may not work. Furthermore, getting the vaccine now would be like trying to buy an umbrella when you're in the middle of the monsoon. It takes about 2-3 weeks for the effect of the vaccine to come in. So if you get it now, we can't be sure that it will be beneficial.

hi.. thanks for a very timely update on the epidemic.... yes vaccination is available and is safe. Post vaccination antibodies usually take two weeks to develop which will give protection for almost a year. Usually two shots are recommended at a span of 6 months as antibodies which provide protection vain with time. Kindly consult your prediatrician for the same.

Thank you Ankita for the information. At times we do tend to ignore cold and cough thinking it's because of the weather. But it's better to be cautious since swine flu is also on rise. Just stay protected!
