The governor of New York State, Andrew Cuomo, has declared a public health emergency because of the severity of this year's influenza season.

 

The order makes vaccinations more accessible and allows pharmacists to administer vaccines to children.

 

Almost 20,000 cases of flu have been reported in New York state so far this season - more than four times the number of cases last winter.

 

The flu outbreak has reached epidemic proportions across the US.
