Risk of Severe H1N1 Disease With Asthma Again Confirmed

I read this article out of Boston. They have gone back to look at risk factors among people hospitalized in Massachusetts with severe H1N1 influenza. It turns out that asthma was the biggest risk factor, affecting 31% of the people hospitalized. The article also highlights the significant risk of seasonal influenza to asthmatics as well.

If your child has asthma, please contact us about getting him or her vaccinated against H1N1 influenza and seasonal influenza.
