Hallo Loloa
The H1N1 virus tends to cause severe chest infections in pregnant women, people with reduced immunity and asthma patients, so one would want to prevent H1N1 infection (swine flu)by taking the vaccine. Because it is a virus, antibiotics don't help for the infection and if you do get sick you can end up in ICU or even die.
