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

BY JOHANN HAMILTON

 

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.
