I did not get the flu last year when kids got it. Like everything, I’ve heard various theories. I always thought immune deficiency but I’ve also heard hyper-immunity. Like our body is on high alert with these bugs so it quickly knocks out the small stuff. Who knows. I get stomach bugs but not really viral things.
I'm thinking hyper immunity, too, K07.
I rarely got the flu or colds throughout my life. I don't think it means my immune system is suppressed...because I believe we'd get it really bad if that's the case.
If immune suppression means you don't have symptoms...then why do the elderly have a higher risk of getting the flu and being hospitalized? We know as we age, our immune system wanes.
