We asked some Queens residents what they thought of the new mandate that requires daycare and preschool children to get the flu vaccine.



It makes sense, students who aren’t vaccinated pose a health risk to the other students.
Albert Sherman


I agree with the idea, it’s in everyone’s best interest to get flu shots.
Derrick Logan


I think the idea is good, but I’m not sure it’s his place to force vaccinations on students.
George Thomas


I don’t see why anyone would be against this policy; children are supposed to be getting their flu shots anyway.
Jaime Davis


I just feel sorry for people who might not be able to afford a flu shot for their children. What are they supposed to do?
Joann Banks


I think Bloomberg should just mind his own business. He’s on his way out of office soon anyway, there’s no point in starting this up now.
Kristina Ballard


I think it’s a good idea from a logical standpoint, because vaccinations are a good thing. But, it’s not right to force them on people who might not want to give their kids a flu shot for whatever reason.
Matt Clayton


On the one hand, I can see why it’s good for kids to be vaccinated, but on the other hand, it shouldn’t be forced on them, even though it’s for the best.
