The 2012-2013 flu season, which started and peaked earlier, claimed the lives of at least 149 children, up from the usual range of 34 to 123 child deaths, CDC officials said on Thursday. More than 50% of all reported flu-related hospitalizations involved individuals aged 65 and older, the highest proportion since the agency began gathering data on flu hospitalizations in 2005-2006. The findings appear in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
