The Department of Health says the influenza A case involves a Lawrence County resident in his or her 20s.
Health officials are encouraging a flu vaccine for everyone over 6 months of age. Last season, nearly 54 percent of South Dakotans got a flu shot, the second highest vaccination rate in the nation.
