As a newborn baby, it is your first time being exposed to the germs of the world. But as you grow older, your body matures with age. You build your immune system by getting sick and recovering and getting shots from the doctor. However, when elderly, it's not just about immunity anymore; your body becomes weaker from different things like working your whole life. Organs may begin to shut down slowly and bones become more brittle. It's part of the aging process.
