H1N1 is especially dangerous for children. Experts don't believe that this virus is any less dangerous this year. More than 270 children died from the flu last year -- three times as many as in a typical flu season, according to the CDC. Pregnant women are also at high risk: Although they represent only 1 percent of the population, they accounted for 5 percent of the deaths from H1N1. Pregnant women who get H1N1 are also at higher risk for fetal distress, premature delivery, and emergency c-sections.
