While the flu and seasonal sickness is no joke, we like to take a light hearted approach to encourage our patients to get their annual flu shot (it’s not too late!), see a doctor when sick, and avoid public places when you’re ill. Here’s some of our favorite flu and sick memes for this year:
Success kid meme
You, too, can be the success kid if you get your flu shot. It takes a couple weeks to build up the antibodies to prevent the flu, so get the flu shot as soon as you can. It is a myth that you can get the flu FROM the flu shot, but it’s true that the shot does not prevent every strain of the flu virus. It can drastically reduce symptoms, however.
Office Space meme
Does anyone else feel like the flu season lasts for-EVER? You can see flu seasonality on this chart here, but typically flu season lasts well into March.
Oprah “everyone gets the flu!” meme
It can be hard to predict exactly when the flu season will hit; some years it begins early and other years it may strike later. One thing many people lament is that once someone gets the flu, it seems like it’s everywhere!
I ate a vegetable once meme
If only vegetables could prevent the flu…
Too hot, too cold meme
The hot-cold-cold-hot uncomfort of being sick is no joke. Remember to see a doctor anytime you’re worried about your symptoms.
A little horse meme
A good pun can help even the the worst days when you’re stuck in bed.
