    SAN FRANCISCO, CA, 9/10/12

    Researchers at the 2012 Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy presented the results of a study in which they studied the interaction between seasonal and pandemic viruses in ferrets vaccinated with a seasonal flu virus and subsequently infected with the pandemic H1N1 virus.

The researchers concluded that the seasonal vaccine worsened the symptoms of the pandemic flu.
