Could New York require flu vaccine for students? State officials are considering it

New York State is considering requiring the flu vaccine this year for students.

The governor’s team was asked about that possibility at a briefing earlier this week.

Meanwhile, Dr. Howard Zucker told reporters that they are considering it.

Doctors and public health officials are supportive of the proposal.

No additional information about the prospect has been released.

However, Massachusetts recently became the first state to require it.
