Mature Market Experts Stat of The Day: Flu Deaths and Hospitalizations

The mature market is hit the hardest during flu season.

 

Each year in the U.S., an average of 36,000 people die, and more than 200,000 are hospitalized from serious flu complications. Ninety percent of flu deaths and more than half of hospitalizations occur in people 65 years and older.

 

People in this age group are at high risk for serious flu complications because they have weaker immune systems. This makes them more vulnerable to illnesses — including flu –that can have serious complications.
