In brief: Can be tested
State health departments and specialty labs can often find the specific type of a flu swab sample.
Quick office tests are designed to confirm flu(a or b) but do not identify the strain. Although serious for some, the h1n1 strain had a lower case fatality rate than the seasonal flu. Flu vaccines for the past & present season protect against it.
