My great grandfather died from the Spanish Flu pandemic in 1918... I didn't know him (despite Fiddy telling people I am over 100), but it was only called Spanish flu because all the news about it came from the Spanish newspapers. Spain was not active in WWI, so their newspapers were still going out regularly. In truth, the virus most likely started in the US and was spread to Europe when the US entered WWI.

Someone else mentioned vaccine issues then, but there were no viral vaccines then. There were several antibiotics being used, but they only helped with the pneumonia resulting from the flu, and not the virus itself.


Correct. I believe the most likely beginning of the "Spanish" flu was from American soldiers that had been stationed in Kansas who brought it to Europe 1918. Also, you don't look a day over 90 :)

We both got our boosters and our flu shot today so we can hug you next time we see you. I feel it's important to protect the elderly. ;)
