To the Editor—I read with interest the reports of the adenovirus 14 outbreaks and am intrigued by its appearance in the post–adenovirus vaccination era in the military, which began in 1996. The fact that prior evidence of immunity to adenovirus 7 protected against severe adenovirus 14 disease suggests the possibility that the lack of immunity to adenovirus 7 may play a role in adenovirus 14 disease.
