Is the H1N1 vaccine stop you from getting the swine flu or is it like the seasonal flu shot that you still might get it but just not a bad?
The purpose of the H1N1 swine flu vaccine is to stop you from getting the H1N1 swine flu. However, like the seasonal flu shot, it is not 100% effective. If you still get the H1N1 swine flu, hopefully it will not be as bad.
