 Studies Link Seasonal Flu Shots to Influenza A (H1N1) Risk

But these results are preliminary, and experts say that they need to be validated.

"This is some evidence that has been floated; it hasn't been validated yet, it's very preliminary," the Star Online quoted Dr. Don Low, microbiologist in chief at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, saying.
