Hello.... There is no antidote for viral infection ... Only vaccines are there ..., Its costly since its not included in basic vaccination schedule...The vaccine, Influenza A (H5N1) Virus Monovalent Vaccine, Adjuvanted, is for use in people 18 years of age and older who are at increased risk of exposure to the H5N1 influenza virus.
