It is a widely recognized fact that the flu can be extremely dangerous. But, as people age, the body’s natural immune system weakens, and viruses like the flu can be deadly. People 65 and older are at a much greater risk of developing complications from the flu than younger adults. In fact, the CDC has reported that in recent years, an estimated 70-90 percent of flu-related deaths occurred in people 65 years of age or older.
