How would you catch the three different types of black death?

In addition to the bubonic plague, there are two other different diseases caused by the same organism, called the septicemic plague and the pneumonic plague. The bubonic plague is spread by rats and fleas; a person gets it by being bitten by an infected flea. The septicemic form is the same disease, except that it has spread into a person's blood stream, where it progresses more rapidly and is more likely to be lethal. If the plague gets into a person's lungs, then the form is the pneumonic plague, and it can be spread in the droplets in the air when that person coughs; another person can catch the pneumonic plague by breathing the air.
