NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Gov. Andrew Cuomo took to social media Friday to remind New Yorkers to get a flu shot, posting a photo of himself getting one himself.

But his followers were distracted by a couple of things: First, he's not wearing a mask. Second his muscles. 

First off, the photo is from last year, which explains why he's not wearing a mask. There were dozens and dozens of comments asking where his mask was. 

"Flu season is approaching," Cuomo wrote. "This year it's especially important to get vaccinated for the flu. You don't want to risk getting both Covid AND the flu. See where you can get a flu shot here: (Edit: Picture is from last year, hence no masks.)"

As for his biceps, "Flex on em gov!!!" one user wrote on Instagram.

Another user, below, also cited his physique.
