A publication in Haematologica 2010.

Repeated vaccination is required to optimise seroprotection against H1N1 in the immunocompromised host.

Conclusions. These data demonstrate the efficacy of H1N1 vaccine in most patients with haematological malignancies and support the recommendation for the administration of 2 vaccine doses in immunocompromised patients. These results may contribute towards the development of evidence-based guidelines for influenza vaccination in such patients in the future.
