Dear Rakesh,the influenzavaccine given to prevent flu.Every year the strain of virus changes so the vaccine also changes.So it is recommended to give vaccine yearly.This is not a compulsory vaccine recommended by Indian academy of pediatrics.So you may opt for not giving it.
Thanks for your prompt reply. This vaccine is vaxigrip (bird flu) was given in 2 doses when my son was 7 and 8 months. My doctor has said that we have to give this dose again this year. Is it necessary to give this dose again this year?
Thanks & Regards,
