The healthcare workers having seroprotection at 3 weeks (n = 127) following Pandemic H1N1 2009 influenza vaccination were followed up for antibody persistence. Seroprotection at 12 mo (60.2%) was significantly lower as compared with 3 weeks (74.7%), 3 mo (77.8%) and 6 mo (75.4%). The vaccine provided seroprotection up to one year.
