First infections with the 2009 pandemic H1N1 influenza virus were identified on Reunion Island in July 2009. By the end of July, sustained community transmission of the virus was established. Pandemic H1N1 influenza activity peaked during week 35 (24 to 30 August), five weeks after the beginning of the epidemic and has been declining since week 36. We report preliminary epidemiological characteristics of the pandemic on Reunion Island in 2009 until week 37 ending September 13.
