they'll get exposed to other things. the flu should be a mandatory vaccine for kids going to schools. however, like everything else, they botched the whole political scene because this was pushed through the bloomberg administration. it was voted by the health department. they're not elected officials. unfortunately, the judge might be right. i'm not a lawyer. but what he's saying you can't just do this unilaterally. you have to have the legislature vote on it. it sends the wrong message. now people think the judge is right. he's against vaccines. no. he said the ruling was not proper, so, you know, he's right to say what he said. but it's creating more confusion dari: right. you're arguing there's a big difference between the legal research. research. dari: understood. >> when you look at other industries, more and more you see other industes lkei in hospitals, now we mandate that every employee take the flu shot. steve: you can't go around patients or something.
