The 2009 influenza A (H1N1) monovalent vaccine was released in mid October.

Can you get swine flu twice?

Is it possible to catch swine flu twice? Yes, because the virus can mutate (change). If you become infected with the swine flu virus, your body produces antibodies against it, which will recognise and fight off the virus if the body ever encounters it again.

Can you still spread a virus after a vaccine?

Infections happen in only a small proportion of people who are fully vaccinated, even with the Delta variant. When these infections occur among vaccinated people, they tend to be mild. If you are fully vaccinated and become infected with the Delta variant, you might be able to spread the virus to others.
