A new report in the Journal of the American Medical Association finds that at least in one community those who got H1N1 really weren't any sicker than those with the seasonal flu.

The study focused on people living in Marshfield which is a concentrated area located in central Wisconsin.

Researchers found very few differences in symptoms and complications between those with H1N1 and those who had the influenza 'A' virus. they also say that in terms of pneumonia and hospitalizations there were very few differences in children who had either strain of the virus.
