"If (this strain) continues to be the predominant virus, that is what we'd expect", Fry said.
Last year, when the more virulent H3N2 virus was predominant, millions more got sick, almost 1 million were hospitalized, and as many as 80,000 died, according to the CDC.

Data presented in FluView allow CDC to track flu activity, but do not provide exact case counts, with the exception of flu-associated pediatric deaths and human infections with novel influenza A viruses, which are nationally notifiable. A new study, led by the Computational Health Informatics Program (CHIP) at Boston Children's Hospital, combines two forecasting methods with machine learning (artificial intelligence) to estimate local flu activity.
Because the model is new, CDC researchers said they aren't able to compare those estimates to previous flu seasons. Furthermore, this week's overall hospitalization rate is at 9.1 per 100,000, but at the same time past year the hospitalization rate was at 30.5 per 100,000.
"It is important to remember that, even if a patient gets the flu after receiving the vaccine, it is not usually as severe as if the patient had not received the vaccine at all", Durham wrote.
