What the Expert Says:

Dear Trix:

It would make sense that if you had the H1N1 virus that you would be immune; however, since you cannot be specifically tested for the virus in most cases, receiving the vaccine is always the safer route to go.  You could have H1N3 or some other virus which would behave like H1N1 and be fooled into a false security.
