Flu Bee Game 2017/18
Flu Bee is a unique online game designed to improve staff uptake
of the flu vaccine. Flu Bee will help your staff understand why the vaccine is
so important, and encourage them to get vaccinated. Games are an effective and
unusual way to focus attention and inspire action.

and the transformation team at James Paget University Hospitals NHS FT. In 2016
Joan’s team almost doubled the trust’s staff vaccination rate with their innovative
The Flu Bee game works on any device and only takes a few minutes
to play. Players answer questions about flu and vaccination. If they get enough
questions right and dodge the flu bugs the ‘honeycomb path’ they build leads
them to ‘Queen Bee’ status.
Players share their success on the game’s leader-board, and social media and can invite colleagues to
play and compete. The objective is to create a local, regional and national ‘buzz’
through social media and word-of-mouth that raises awareness and increases
uptake of the vaccine.
