Why Are Baby Boomers Baby Affected by This Flu?


Baby boomers across the United States are getting swept up in this year’s flu season.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, adults between the ages of 50 and 64 years old are being hospitalized the most, except for the elderly.
The CDC added that older adults are feeling this flu even worse than infants, based on hospitalization.
Some experts think that Baby boomers haven’t been exposed to a key strain of the virus when they were younger, making it more difficult to overcome.
Specifically, experts think that the H2 and H3 strains provide an answer, since the Baby boomer generation was exposed to H2N2 when they were younger, and not H3N2 which is circulating this flu season.
