The World Health Organization (WHO) has confirmed that the H1N1 flu vaccine is the most important tool against the virus and has urged people to use it. Although mild side effects such as muscle cramps or headache can occur in some cases, WHO has said that the vaccine is safe.
“It is important to remember that the vaccines, which have already been approved, have been used for years and years and years in their seasonal vaccine formulation and have been shown to be among the safest vaccines that exist,” WHO spokesman Gregory Hartl said on Tuesday. “We would hope that everyone who has a chance to get vaccinated does get vaccinated,” he said.
