tip 21 for 2012

"Annual vaccination against influenza virus hampers development of virus-specific CD8⁺ T cell immunity in children.",

"We recently demonstrated that vaccination against seasonal influenza prevented the induction of heterosubtypic immunity against influenza A/H5N1 virus induced by infection with seasonal influenza in animal models, which correlated with the absence of virus-specific CD8(+) T cell responses."
