Abstract

Even though the majority of cases of 2009 pandemic influenza A H1N1 are mild, severe disease does occur in children. In addition, neurological complications and coinfection with bacteria exist. Treatment with antiviral medications should be initiated within 48 h to be most effective. When pandemic H1N1 vaccines become available, the safety and efficacy of these vaccines in this vulnerable population will be important to document.
