The most likely explanation is that these cases of flu are caused by a
strain antigenically related to the H1N1 A/Texas/91 virus. The H1N1
strains are causing relatively few reported cases of influenza in recent
years, possibly because it is evolving into a less virulent virus. There
was very little H1N1 activity in the US this year, and no real reason I
know of to expect it to be more prevalent next season. the H3N2's are much
more liklely to cause illness. Get your shot!
