Daar is vier hoof groepe griep virusse, hulle word A, B, C en D genoem. Onder die Groepe A en B val ook die gewone jaarlikse griep.

Die Groep A virusse is baie meer aansteeklik en onder die A groep is daar verdere verdelings in H (Hemaglutinin) en N (Neuramidase) – byvoorbeeld H1N1. Party sub tipes is baie meer gevaarlik vir jong kinders en ou mense.
