The seasons associated with laboratory isolation of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) (for 1981–2004) and RSV-related emergency department admissions (for 1990–2004) ended 3.1 and 2.5 weeks earlier, respectively, per 1°C increase in annual central England temperature (P = .002 and .043, respectively). Climate change may be shortening the RSV season.
