"But even if you are one of the lucky ones who bounces back quickly from the flu, people around you may not be so lucky".

"The best ways to help protect yourself and those around you from influenza are to get immunized, wash your hands frequently, and to cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue".

Health officials said it is especially important for children, pregnant women, seniors and people with chronic illnesses.

"Influenza, which people often call the flu, is sometimes confused with the common cold, the stomach flu (norovirus) or other illnesses caused by a virus", said Dr. Rakel Kling, Medical Health Officer.

The government of Manitoba is once again encouraging families to get a flu shot this season.

The flu is a contagious respiratory disease caused by a virus infecting the nose, throat, and lungs and can lead to serious complications such as pneumonia or bronchitis, hospitalization, or even death.

The flu spreads when a person comes into contact with droplets from an infected person who coughs or sneezes.

This year's shot offers protection against two influenza A viruses (an H1N1 and an H3N2 virus) and one influenza B virus. Even healthy people can get sick with the flu and have serious complications.

The Department of Health says the influenza A case involves a Lawrence County resident in his or her 20s. The flu shot is also available at many doctor's offices, pharmacies and walk-in clinics - those who are not eligible for the free vaccine will be required to pay a fee.
