Can you get a regular old Cold or Flu at 27 years old (even if your immune system is strong and healthy)? ?

Can you get a regular old cold or flu at 27 years old even if your immune system is strong and healthy and you don’t smoke or drink too much alcohol (which I know that both of these things can harm your immune system)?

    Are you saying that you're 27 and you've never had a cold?  I find that very hard to believe. 

    But to answer your question.  Yes, you can catch a cold or flu.
