Tamiflu is a neuraminidase inhibitor, which works by blocking the effects of the neuraminidase chemical produced by the influenza virus. Blocking this chemical prevents the virus from spreading into the respiratory airways. As a result, the immune system is in an advantageous position to fight the virus as quickly as possible. The infection is cleared effectively if taken in the first 48 hours of symptoms appearing.
Tamiflu is not a vaccine, it is a medication to treat infection and to prevent it from spreading.
