Danish study of admissions during the 2009 "world" pandemic shows that it was especially schoolchildren and young adults who were hospitalized, while seniors over 65 largely escaped.

A Danish study of hospitalizations due to pneumonia, influenza, other serious respiratory infections, and febrile seizures shows that it was especially schoolchildren and young adults who were hospitalized during the influenza A (H1N1)-pandemic in autumn 2009.

For the 5 to 24-year-olds was 63 per cent. more hospitalizations than during normal flu seasons. This corresponds to about 500 admissions. On the other hand went seniors over 65 years relatively free of the pandemic.
Overall pandemic caused about 2600 extra admissions compared with the previous five influenza seasons.

The study has been released in english.

The 2009 pandemic influenza did not lead to an overall increase in the number of influenza-associated hospitalisations in Denmark in the 2009/2010 season and could be managed within existing hospital capacity. However, there was a disproportionally large impact on the age group 5–24 years. The influenza-associated hospitalisations during the 2009/2010 pandemic influenza season bore the signature features of historical pandemics: A skewed age-pattern and early out of season transmission.

It says that in the article for anyone thats going to post without reading, some mad conspiracy about H1N1 being targeted at kids.
