( 2/15/14) State health officials are warning people to get their flu vaccinations.

The warning comes in the wake of a 43-year-old Wausau man who died after being diagnosed with the H-1-N-1 flu virus. A spokesperson for the health department says the strain, first recorded in 2009, affects young, healthy people and is covered by a flu shot. Officials say while this case is tragic, the flu is not currently considered widespread in the state at the time.
