Is the Yearly flu vaccine reccomended , If yes when do we start and till what age is it advised and what is the benefit does it mean he will never fall sick ? my boy is 3 months old .
The Influenza vaccine prevents only Influenza, which is a very severe viral fever. It does not confer protection against common cold and the usual viral fevers. For the last few years, the vaccine also contains the strain that causes the 'swine flu' or H1N1, and therefore offers protection against that disease too. Please note that giving the vaccine does not guarantee protection against the illness, but then having some protection is better than having no protection.
