YES: Yes. Antibiotics are used to treat bacterial infections. H1N1 is a strain of the influenza virus. Even if you are taking antibiotics, you can still get infected with a viral infection like influenza. Getting a yearly flu shot can reduce your risk of getting influenza including the H1N1 strain.
