What is it so important about tamiflu? As I know, it is not a common vaccine. How does it work against viruses? I often do a vaccination for prevention of flu. Is tamiflu an oral kind of prevention?
I know it is very popular, so I am interested if anyone has experience with tamiflu.

Tamiflu contains oseltamivir phosphate, an antiviral drug. It is not an oral vaccine, you are right. It is oral drug. Vaccine contains inactive viruses. Its efficacy is approved in preventing flu in adults. Tamiflu is effective against influenza viruses, and it is not universal antiviral drug. In immunocompromised patients this effect has not been established.
