In brief: Serious

The h1n1 influenza strain (swine flu) can cause a very serious infection - especially in the very old and the very young.
Please vaccinate your child against influenza now.

In brief: Swine flu

There is no indication that swine flu in babies less than 6 months causes serious illness except in a small minority of babies.
Of course, following clean hygiene around the babies from washing hands and keep people who are sick away from your baby is essential.
