Gov. Cuomo gets flu shot to encourage inoculations

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo has received a flu shot to urge people to get the inoculations during a particularly serious flu season.

After getting his shot at a press conference Thursday, Cuomo received a lollipop from state Health Commissioner Nirav Shah.

Shah says more than 19,000 flu cases have been reported this year, compared to just over 4,000 last year.

Shah said two children died from the flu in New York and it's not too late to get shots to protect against the disease.

Cuomo said the shot didn't hurt at all.

    Music is a powerful force that impacts how we feel, think and react to many things in life. Music has healing power, sets a mood and even influences how we eat and shop. Whether you're at the grocery store or shoe shopping, there's usually music on. Music is everywhere and we can listen to whatever we want.
