In brief: Not a separate vacci
H1N1 is not a separate vaccine but is incorporated in the annual flu vaccine.
It start working right away.But according to CDC it takes 2weeks to get full immunity

In brief: 10 dats
The latest data shows that a good immune response develops within about 10 days of receiving the vaccination.
But for children under 10, they don't develop a strong immunity with just one dose. That's why they need to get a second vaccination within a month of the first one.

In brief: About 2 weeks
After a person receives a flu vaccine, his body starts to identify the virus (if live vaccine) or pieces of virus (if non-live vaccine) as foreign.
Then his immune system, with its white blood cells, lymph nodes, and spleen, remembers the virus's parts and makes antibodies against them. In about 2 weeks, his body should be able to recognize and destroy the 3 flu virus types in the annual vaccine.
