BACKGROUND  The 2010-2011 influenza season was dominated by influenza A(H3N2) virus, but influenza A(H1N1) pdm09 (pH1N1) and B viruses cocirculated. This provided an opportunity to explore within-season predictors of severity among hospitalized patients, avoiding biases associated with season-to-season differences in strain virulence, population immunity, and healthcare seeking. METHODS  Population-based, laboratory-confirmed influenza hospitalization surveillance data were used to examine… CONTINUE READING
