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.
