    Other sources mention H9N2 vaccines. I'll look them up when I have more time. But yes, the "real thing" sure works better.

      See e.g. the Ferguson,Bush paper

      Very interesting paper. I need to reread it a few more times, but they did say new strains should wipe out the old. So it's goodbye H3N2 & H1N1 if we have a H5N1 pandemic......except for fowl-pig farmers with a little H5 immunity!

      I'm always a little uncomfortable with conclusions based on models, but since so much influenza character is "unknown", I'll settle for every bit of help.

      Thanks for the source.
