Q:

Is it better for my father, who is visiting U.S., to get H1N1 vaccination now, specially when he is flying back home in 4 days?

Will the vaccine protect him from infection in the airport and in the flight?

What the Expert Says:

While the vaccine is helpful it takes up to two weeks for it to be fully effective. Have your dad ask his doctor what he should consider for this trip.  If you are pregnant or have children under 6 months old at home he should be immunized.
