Dr. Brownfield answers the question: 'Some People More Likely To Get The Flu?'

— -- Question: Are some people at greater risk of getting the flu than others?

Answer: It's important to know that anyone can get the flu. On the one hand, if you live on a deserted island you probably have a less likely chance of developing the flu. And for those people who are at high exposure to other people -- teachers, health care workers -- they're at a higher risk of getting the flu because they're around people who might be sick.
