This invention is a method for overcoming alphavirus vaccine interference in alphavirus-immune subjects by administration of a second alphavirus vaccine which is altered such that it is not accessible to interfering antibodies. Examples of such alterations are described as well as evidence showing that alphavirus interference likely results from the binding of interfering antibodies to viral proteins expressed on infected cells thereby causing lysis of infected cells.Start Signature
