Flu Jokes… It’s the cold and flu time of year!

Or as I like to call it, Vitamin C-son.

Flu Season is upon us and that means sickness, shots, and medical masks galore. The exact time frame of ‘flu season’ varies but we are in the thick of it now! The CDC, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, states, “The exact timing and duration of flu seasons can vary, but influenza activity often begins to increase in October. Most of the time flu activity peaks between December and February.” Let’s get to some flu jokes!

Whether you choose to get the flu shot or try your luck with your immune system, these jokes about the ever-dreaded flu are sure to make you chuckle!

The patient went to his doctor because he had flu, and the doctor wrote out a prescription for him in his usual illegible writing. The patient put it in his pocket, but forgot to get the tablets from the pharmacy.

Every morning, for two years, he showed it to the conductor as a railroad pass. Twice, it got him into the movies, once into the soccer stadium, and once into the symphony. He got a raise at work by showing it as a note from his boss.


One day he mislaid it. His daughter picked it up, played it on the piano and won a scholarship to the conservatory of music.
