Killer Flu Game

Killer Flu!! Or, maybe, “non-killer flu” to describe the current outbreak of swine flu! Here is a game that allows you to learn more about how the influenza virus is transmitted and how it changes every year - which explains why you can get more than one dose of the flu over your lifetime and why vaccines need changing every year. We also hope it will be a bit of fun.

The second level of the game is an opportunity to understand why pandemic flu is a bit different to normal yearly (seasonal) flu.
Remember: even pandemic flu generally kills fewer people than you would think. Try to kill too many people in the game and see how difficult it is!

Killer Flu requires the Adobe Flash plug-in
