Q:

I want to know if there is a H1N1 vaccine for children under 2 years old? Also can a child that has had asthma in the past receive the vaccine?

What the Expert Says:

There is a vaccine for H1N1 for children under two years old and it is a killed virus and is injectable.  Children under six months old cannot receive this vaccine.  A child with asthma in the past should receive the vaccine.  Connect with your pediatrician and ask the question.
