First of all, they had no control group. Secondly, their sample size was very small. thirdly, they make this conclusion:

"This finding may be explained by hypothesizing that older people, although not previously exposed to H5N1 subtype, may have gained protective immunity by previous infections sustained by circulating influenza virus strains,” they wrote.

So the more strains of influenza you're exposed to, the better your immune system reacts. NATURAL strains through natural exposure. Not through a vaccine.

All I can imagine from reading this title is that they're going to start vaccinating birds with the flu shot- I mean, if it helps bird flu then you have to vax the birds, right?

See, I think the logic will go "Hey kids, eat more chicken.....you'll get your flu shot AND a healthy dose of protein" :
