NEW YORK (AP) New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is not scared of needles.

Bloomberg got a flu shot during his weekly radio broadcast on WOR and said he couldn't even feel it.

Bloomberg scoffed that "people say it hurts."

He said he literally could not feel the shot administered by Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas Farley.

WOR host John Gambling got his shot and agreed that it didn't hurt.

Farley said New Yorkers should get vaccinated and should get their children vaccinated.

He said four children died of flu in the city last year.
