CIMA Medical Center in Miami Springs shares some information about Why Spring is Second Peak Season for The Common Cold.
A combination of factors go together to expose you to the viral infectious agents that cause colds (human rhinovirus is the most common) during the spring.
Spring weather is still cold enough to keep
infectious agents replicating, albeit comparatively slowly.
Allergies, caused by the release of pollen grains into the air, increase the risk of being attacked by cold viruses; and your immune system minimized by staying mostly indoors during the winter months catches you off guard when fighting off those viral agents.
In short, it is more due to the increased vulnerability to common cold viruses than their presence, which is much higher during winters, causing the secondary spike in common cold cases during the spring.
